We are happy to announce that we will be holding our next Basics 6 week class starting June 7th 2021! Classes will be held every Monday, 6-8PM over ZOOM.

NAMI Basics is a 6-session free education program for parents, caregivers and other family who provide care for youth (ages 22 and younger) who are experiencing mental health symptoms.

By participating in NAMI Basics, you’ll realize that you are not alone. You’ll find support and shared understanding—compassion, reinforcement and empathy from people who truly get your situation. And don’t forget: Your experiences may also help others in the course. Together, you will all learn that recovery is a journey, and there is hope.
