Family-to-Family is a no-cost, evidenced-based program designed to help family members, caregivers, friends, and loved ones of people living with mental illness. This 12-week class, taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, has been shown to improve coping and problem-solving skills. It includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises.
