Family To Family
I want to talk about all the benefits of the Family to Family class today. This class is for family members who are caregivers to someone who has a mental illness. I took this course twice, shortly after I joined NAMI. I was in dire need of help with dealing with severe depression. I learned so much the first time I took it. And then it was offered in my local area. I took it again. I learned so much that actually did help in our situation. The course covers a lot of material, about a number of mental illnesses. I felt so strongly about this course that I volunteered to be a teacher, and was trained from NAMIMASS. This will be the first time I teach the course along with a very experienced co-teacher. If you have an ill family member, and you want to learn as much as you can to support him/her, see the flier posted for it on this website, under Events. You won't believe how much you'll learn.
