Share your lived experience to help other families by becoming a NAMI Basics teacher.
NAMI Clackamas is seeking volunteers to teach our 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 facing similar challenges. NAMI Basics is a free six-session class (once a week) 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.

Requirements include taking the Basics class and then attending a Basics Teacher Training. Training can be done online.

Classes are currently being held via Zoom. Possible in-person classes to be determined later this year, but will be held based on teacher availability and preference for online or in-person.
