Friday and Saturday I'm helping to sponsor a NAMI Basics class in our community. Hopefully we have a good turnout for our "Cram and Jam" session! We are offering six weeks of classes in two packed days.
NAMI Basics is the signature education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses. The NAMI Basics course is taught by trained teachers who are the parent or other caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness prior to the age of 13 years.
It's free and taught peer-to-peer because those who have been there understand the best. NAMI is a great community resource if it's available.
