NAMI signature programs are offered at no cost to the public. Some programs, such as Family-to-Family classes and Family Support Group, are offered exclusively to adult family members and close friends who are caregivers for a person living with mental illness. Our signature programs are taught and led by trained, certified volunteer leaders who have lived family experience of the challenges of a loved one living with mental illness.
There is a long, demonstrated history of NAMI programs and support making a difference in families’ lives and we welcome your participation. During this time of social distancing, all programming is online and our HelpLine is available by phone. We will begin Family-to-Family classes online in 2021.
These programs are not open for observation to social workers, interns, and medical professionals unless they are seeking support for themselves as a family member, caregiver or close friend of a person who has mental illness.
For individuals in recovery or living with mental illness who are seeking support, see Living with Mental Illness – Peer Support Groups.
