The Family-to-Family Education Program is a free 12-week course for families and friends of individuals with mental illness. Topics include: major mental illnesses, new research, problem solving, communication skills, self-care, services, and advocacy. The course is taught by trained family members who have lived with this experience. Many family members describe the impact of this program as life changing.
"I have been dealing with my son's mental illness for eight years with no real knowledge of what was going on. This course was very thorough and really answered so many questions for me. It helped me realize that others have the same issues and therefore understand." - past participant
The class will be offered in Burlington on Thursday evenings starting March 5 & advance registration is required. For more info or to pre-register, contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Vermont (NAMI-VT) at 1-800-639-6480.
