NAMI Yolo County is excited to announce that Family Support Group facilitator training is available now!
We are looking for individuals who are interested in being trained to be Family Support Group Facilitators. Family Support Group is a centerpiece of NAMI Yolo which offers vital support to family members in the community who are struggling with a loved one’s mental health condition. No prior facilitator experience is needed. Training will be held through zoom.
Family Support Group is a NAMI volunteer facilitator-led support group that promotes wellness, family stability and psychoeducation. It is a safe space for families to share their similar experiences and can benefit from one another’s wisdom.
If you are a family member who would like to contribute some of your skills and support to other families in need, this may be the right opportunity for you!
Support Groups are held weekly over ZOOM, but there is an opportunity to co-facilitate twice a month if once a week is too intensive.
Those who have already been trained and would like to facilitate FSG again are encouraged to reach out to us as well.
