The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Signature Family-to-Family Education Program is coming to Douglasville for a 10-week program beginning on Sunday, February 3, 2019 and will continue through April 7, 2019 between the hours of 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, education program for family, partners, friends, and significant others of adults living with mental illness. The course is designed to help all family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while maintaining their own well-being. The course includes information on illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and other mental health conditions. Thousands of families describe the program as life-changing. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also family members and know what it is like to have a loved one living with mental illness.

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

“If you or a family member is struggling with a mental illness, this program will work for you,” NAMI member and facilitator, Jennifer Dupont explained. “It is a unique experience and a safe place to express yourself and your condition. I would encourage you to take the class if you are seeking help.”

Registration is required to participate in the program. To register, email, Jennifer Dupont at Registration closes on Friday, January 25, 2019.
