Due to covid restrictions all NAMI Affiliates have suspended their in-person education courses until further notice. Please consider signing up for free NAMI online training. NAMI offers the following:
NAMI Basics is a 6-session education program for parents, caregivers and other family who provide care for youth (ages 22 and younger) who are experiencing mental health symptoms. This program is free to participants, 99% of whom say they would recommend the program to others.
NAMI Homefront is a free, 6-session educational program for families, caregivers and friends of military service members and veterans with mental health conditions.
Based on the nationally recognized NAMI Family-to-Family program, NAMI Homefront is designed to address the unique needs of family, caregivers and friends of those who have served or are currently serving our country. The program is taught by trained family members of service members/veterans with mental health conditions.
Volunteer as a NAMI Facilitator
We are starting two online support groups. Both will require training provided by NAMI at no cost to the volunteer. A one-year commitment is requested for all new facilitators.
NAMI Connection Online Support Group Facilitator
The first support group opportunity is as a NAMI Connection Online Support Group facilitator who is living with a mental health condition. The Connection Facilitator will lead a support group for people who are concerned about their mental health. NAMI Connection groups allow you to talk about your experiences in a safe and confidential setting. The groups encourage empathy, productive discussion, and a sense of community. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others.
NAMI Homefront Facilitator
The second support group opportunity is as a NAMI Homefront facilitator who is a family member of service members/veterans with mental health conditions. The Homefront facilitator will teach other family members who also have service members/veterans with mental health conditions. Recovery is a journey and there is hope for all people affected by mental health conditions. This in-person experience provides the opportunity for mutual support and shared positive impact. You will lead a group to experience compassion and reinforcement from people who relate to your experiences. Through your participation, you have the opportunity to help others grow.
