Family to Family                Education Program          Knowledge is Power!

Mental Illness affects one in four people in the United States.  Families dealing with mental illnesses and brain disorders of a loved one, young or old, greatly benefit from peer education and support.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Western Massachusetts is pleased to offer at no cost to the public a 12 week Family to Family Education Program for family members, partners and friends of individuals with a range of mental illnesses including: Major Depression; Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression); Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder; Borderline Personality Disorder; Anxiety and Panic Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; Co-occurring Brain Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and more.

Our class starts on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Providence Behavior Health Hospital 1233 Main Street in Holyoke. Pre-registration is required. Family to Family is a national education program that includes 12 weekly classes designed to help caregivers understand and support their loved ones with serious mental illness while maintaining their own well-being. 

The course is facilitated by trained local NAMI family member volunteers who know what it's like to have a loved one struggling with one of these brain disorders.

You are not alone.  VETERAN FAMILIES WELCOME!  We can help.  For more information please call us:
