My cert from NAMI Family-to-Family Class

Family to Family is a class offered through NAMI, National Alliance of Mental Illness. It’s free due to their fundraising efforts and it’s a class that is offered through twelve sessions. Sometimes once a week for 12 weeks and sometimes twice a week for 6 weeks.

Since I recommend it to others, I decided to take it myself. It’s a valuable course for those who live with a loved one who suffers mental illness and many NAMI chapters around the country offer the course in your area if you are in the United States.

You can go to the NAMI website to learn more and find out if it’s available in your area.

Some pathetic group selfies below. I really need a selfie stick for these. We captured the spirit of the group. This was our celebratory dinner after completing the course.
