What is NAMI Family-to-Family? A FREE, 12-session course for family, partners, friends and significant others of people living with mental illness. 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 a mental health condition. The course includes information on illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and other mental health conditions. It is designed to help Adult family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while learning to maintain their own well-being.

Thousands of families describe the program as life-changing!  Here’s what two participants had to say…

“This course overall was the single most, without a doubt, helpful and informative thing ever offered in all my years searching for answers… It has helped me to understand better and communicate more effectively with my brother.”

“The course has helped me to realize that my son is still inside the body that is often times hidden by the mental illness and that I am not alone in this.”
