Basics- NAMI Basics is a free, 6-week education program for parents and family caregivers of children and teens who are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or who have already been diagnosed. NAMI Basics is offered in a group setting so you can connect with other people face-to-face. You'll learn the facts about mental health conditions and how best to support your child at home, at school and when they're getting medical care. Last year, 99% of participants told us they would recommend the program to other parents. The course is taught by a trained team with lived experience-they know what you're going through because they've been there. The 6-session program provides critical strategies for taking care of your child and learning the ropes of recovery.


Basic Instructors are volunteers, for qualifying individuals that were parents/primary caregivers of their child that encountered symptoms of mental health condition before the age of 13 years old.

**Please note, the "child" can now be an adult, but their symptoms started as a child.


**Times are flexible and we will work with your schedule.
