Family-to-Family Class
By NAMI-Wood River Valley

NAMI Family-to-Family is a FREE, evidence-based, educational program for families, significant others, and friends of people with mental health conditions, shown to significantly improve the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to a person with a mental health condition.

The 8-session, Family-to-Family class fosters connection and support through the peer model by utilizing certified facilitators who have also navigated these circumstances within their own lives.
