Here is some information about our Family-to-Family classes? Classes led by loved ones for loved ones.

  • Events are virtual, but for residents of Delaware and Morrow Counties in Ohio
  • Course content is scripted and will be provided. Instructors read material, present videos and facilitate group discussion.
  • Each group is led by two trained educators.
  • Classes are two hours per week for 8 weeks.

NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI started with a small group of families in 1979 and has grown to include more than 500 local affiliates. NAMI Delaware and Morrow Counties is one of those affiliate and provides support groups, education classes and presentations to the community in an effort to decrease the stigma of mental illness and improve the lives of those affected by a mental condition as well as their family members.
