NAMI Family to Family Education Class on Mental Illness - Sat May 4 thru Sat June 8

Dear NAMI Friends, Members and Information Recipients -

Saturday May 4, 9AM - 2:30PM,  begins the six weeks of the NAMI Family to Family class, available only one time a year.   This intensive course is appropriate for family members, caretakers and close friends of people living with mental illness.  It offers the latest in mental illness research and treatments, the most current information on medications, lots of practice with skills to help families be more helpful in working with their loved ones and doctors, and information on advocacy.

This is the first time NAMI has allowed the course to be taught in six, rather than 12 weeks by teaching two classes per Saturday.  The course has been shown to significantly improve coping skills and confidence level of those who complete the course.

We're excited about this chance to offer the course FREE to Amador County, thanks to funding by Amador County Behavioral Health Dept.  Please encourage people to contact  Kelly Trottier or Janet Caton to sign up (contact information on attached flyer.)
