Family & Friends

What is NAMI’s Family & Friends Program?

NAMI Family & Friends is a free 90-minute or four-hour seminar that informs people who have loved ones with a mental health condition how to best support them. It’s also an opportunity to meet other people in similar situations and gain community support.

What You Should Expect:

The seminar is led by trained people with lived experience of supporting a family member with a mental health condition. They will walk you through the following topics:

  • Understanding diagnoses, treatment and recovery
  • Effective communication strategies
  • The importance of self-care
  • Crisis preparation strategies
  • NAMI and community resources

Please contact the Education Program Director at (601) 899-9058 or to request to be notified when the next course is scheduled.
