NAMI Basics

The fundamentals of caring for you and your child with mental illness.

NAMI BASICS is a free new education program for parents and other care givers of children/adolescents living with mental illness. NAMI drew on course elements which have been extensively tested and found to be highly effective.

These elements include:

* Recognition of mental illness as a continuing traumatic event for the child and the family

* Sensitivity to the subjective emotional issues faced by family caregivers and well children in the family

* Recognition of the need to help reduce the day-to-day objective burdens of care and management

* Gaining confidence and stamina for what can be a life-long role of family understanding and support

* Empowerment of caregivers as effective advocates for their children

The NAMI BASICS education program includes the following components:

* Six 2 1/2 hour classes of instructional material, discussions and interactive exercises

* A section of the NAMI website dedicated to disseminating information, including informational videos and resources for the program

* In addition to the core six classes, additional topic modules will be available for independent presentations
