American youth in a mental health crisis. . . you can help! Your personal journey parenting an adolescent with a mental health condition makes you a candidate for the rewarding experience of helping other families by teaching NAMI Basics.

The weekly, six session NAMI Basics course is exclusively for parents/caregivers of children and adolescents experiencing emotional or behavioral health challenges. The program provides critical strategies for taking care of your child and learning the essentials of resiliency and recovery. The course is primarily taught in the evening via Zoom at a schedule determined by the teachers.

There is an in-person NAMI Basics Teacher Training scheduled for the weekend of March 23-24, 9:00-5:00, at the NAMI Massachusetts office in Woburn MA. Massachusetts residents are welcome to apply. Graduates of the training are matched with experienced leaders to form a teaching team for an upcoming session of the class.
