What is the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program?
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. Co-teachers for this class will be Ginny Peterson and Tom Clingan.
NAMI Pierce County, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will offer the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program at the N. Tacoma Police Substation at 5140 N. 26th St, Tacoma. Classes will begin February 21 and run for 12 consecutive Tuesdays from 6:00-8:30pm.
