NAMI Family to Family Online Course

Learn about mental illnesses, the brain, treatment, and resources to help a loved one living with a mental illness. Attendees will also build communication skills, reduce stress, find support and discover the common Stages of Emotional Responses when supporting someone with a mental illness.

This workshop meets weekly for two and a half hours for 8 weeks, and is for family and friends of an adult living with a mental illness. We offer several Family to Family classes in various locations in Minnesota twice per year in the fall and winter/spring. The classes have a cap of 25 participants. You may join up to the 2nd week only, then the class is closed.
