NAMI Family-to-Family
NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 8-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program. Research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition. NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises. The next Family-to-Family class will take place virtually this fall on Tuesdays from 5:45pm-8:30pm beginning on October 5th, 2021.  To register for the class, visit 

Hope for Recovery
Hope for Recovery is a six-hour class for family or friends of a person living with mental illness and for people living with a mental illness who are doing well in their recovery. Hope for Recovery provides information about mental illnesses, treatments, coping strategies, communication skills, crisis management, suicide prevention, the mental health system, local resources and practical strategies for helping a loved one.
