NAMI Family-to-Family is a free eight-week course for family caregivers of individuals with mental illnesses. NAMI-trained family members teach the course, and all materials are free for class participants. You will have the option to choose the electronic or hard copy Family-to-Family manual that will need to be picked up before the class begins. The curriculum focuses on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, clinical depression, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and borderline personality disorder, with a new resource on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The course discusses treatment for these illnesses and teaches the knowledge and skills that family members need to cope with the challenges of living with a relative with a mental illness.
Program funded by MHSA through the County of San Diego HHSA Behavioral Health Division
