The winter sessions of the NAMI Family-to-Family Program will be conducted on Thursday evenings from 6:15 to 9 p.m., starting Feb. 28 and ending May 9. There also will be a class on Tuesday, March 5.
This 12-session 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 sessions cover the major severe brain disorders, such as schizophrenia, major depression and bipolar disorder, including their diagnosis and current treatment. Research on these misunderstood 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 free Family-to-Family program is in its 16th year. It is taught by trained NAMI members, 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/family. For more information or to register, call 530-756-8181 and leave your name and callback number.
