NAMI Basics for Professionals

IMPORTANT NOTICE: NAMI programs should not be used to replace the specialized training and professional judgment of mental health professionals. We cannot, and will not, assume the role of a physician or therapist. NAMI cannot be held responsible for the use of the information we provide. Please always consult a trained mental health professional before making any decision regarding treatment for yourself or others.

NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role families play in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also the parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 13.

NAMI Yolo offers this program to specific groups of professional caregivers as well, to help them understand the impact that mental health conditions have on the youth as well as the family. The information shared in NAMI Basics will equip professional caregivers with unique insights that can enable them to work more collaboratively with families as part of the treatment plan. Registration is required.
