The NAMI Family-to-Family Program helps families and caregivers of people suffering from a brain disorder to understand the causes and origins of the illness and how to cope with everyday problems that arise in lifestyle and communication.
The 12-session program will be offered from 6:15 to 9 p.m. Mondays from Sept. 10 to Nov. 19.
The sessions cover the major severe brain disorders such as schizophrenia, major depression and bipolar disorder, as well as their diagnosis and current treatment. Research on these illnesses is ongoing and NAMI keeps up to date with the latest discoveries and treatment. Frequent updates are made to the class material.
NAMI-Yolo’s Family-to-Family program is in its 16th year. It is taught by trained NAMI members. Enrollment is free and all materials are provided.
Pre-registration is required and the class is limited to 16 people. Information about the program is available on the NAMI-Yolo website at www.namiyolo.org/keys.html. For information or to register, call (530) 756-8181 and leave your name and call-back number.
