About the NAMI Education Series

NAMI Education Series is a program designed to better inform those who have or know someone affected by mental illness. How do we do that? By hosting and offering several presentations to our community!

Why You Should Attend

The road to recovery can sometimes be a scary one with many unknown or confusing factors. Our goal is to provide information that makes this path easier to navigate.

NAMI Family & Friends is a free two-hour seminar that informs people who have loved ones with a mental health condition how to best support them. It’s also an opportunity to meet other people in similar situations and gain community support. The seminar is led by trained people with lived experience of supporting a family member with a mental health condition. They will walk you through the following topics.

  • Understanding diagnoses, treatment, and recovery
  • Effective communication strategies
  • The importance of self-care
  • Crisis preparation strategies
  • NAMI and community resources
