NAMI Family-to-Family Education
This is a free 12-week course taught by NAMI family members who, just like you, are caregivers of an adult loved one who has a mental illness. The class offers education about brain disease, medications, and appropriate treatments, and support for families and friends of adults suffering from a mental illness.
In this class you will:
* Gain insight into how mental illness affects our loved ones
* Take a look at current brain research and medications
* Find out how to become an advocate for the mentally ill
* Learn to cope with stress and focus on taking care of yourself
This class is a service of Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation and NAMI Pierce County. It is free to the public. (Space is limited. Apply here.)
You are not alone!
