NAMI Family-to-Family – Buckhead

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until April 5, 2020

NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, now an 8-week course for families, partners and friends of individuals with serious mental illness taught by trained NAMI family members and caregivers of individuals living with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD and borderline personality disorder. The course goal is to guide family members to emotional understanding, healing, insight and action. Allowing family members to move at their own emotional pace means we do not push the “intellectual/cognitive” learning (head) part of the course, but rather pay attention to the integration of self-selected knowledge and “emotional understanding” (heart).

Described by many family members as life-changing, this course provides caregivers with communication and problems-solving techniques, coping strategies and the self-care skills needed to deal with their loved one’s mental illness as well as the impact on their family.

 Room # 4303. Please email to register: Terri Kinley terrikinley1@gmail.com.
