NAMI Clackamas is seeking volunteers to teach NAMI Basics. If you have lived experience of raising a child or adolescent with a mental health condition, this is a great way to give back and help other families.

Share your lived experience to help other families by becoming a NAMI Basics teacher. Don't miss this opportunity to get inspired and trained by Dr. Teri Brister! Dr. Brister, who developed the Basics education program for NAMI will be in Oregon to offer a free Basics teacher training. This is an opportunity that is not to be missed by anyone who has considered giving back or helping others who are facing similar challenges to those you have faced. The training will be held June 2-3 at the Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center in Oregon City. Applications are due Friday, May 18!

NAMI Basics is a free six-session class for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents who have either been diagnosed with a mental health condition or who are experiencing symptoms but have not yet been diagnosed. It is taught by people who have been there--who have parented a child with a mental health condition.
