New Classes Beginning Tuesday, February 2nd!


NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 12-session education program for family, partners, friends and significant others of adults living with mental illness. The course is designed to help all family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while maintaining their own well-being. The course includes information on illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and other mental health conditions. Thousands of families describe the program as life-changing. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also family members and know what it is like to have a loved one living with mental illness.


NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free, 10-session course for adults living with mental health challenges. NAMI Peer‐to‐Peer provides an educational setting focused on recovery that offers respect, understanding, encouragement and hope. The NAMI Peer-to-Peer education program is:

  • Free and confidential
  • Held {once} a week for two hours
  • Taught by trained Peer Mentors living in recovery themselves
  • A great resource for information on mental health and recovery

NAMI McHenry County is proud to offer Family-to-Family and Peer-to-Peer classes for their spring session, together on the same night. If you are a person searching for what recovery can look like for yourself, or you are a family member looking to learn more about what a loved one might be going through and how you can help them, these classes are for you.  We offer them together in hopes that a person with a mental illness and their significant others can attend together (yet separately) on the same nights.

Classes will meet from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm on consecutive Tuesdays in Crystal Lake.

Classes fill fast so register now here on our website or by calling the NAMI McHenry County office at (815) 308-0851!
