For Parents of Children & Youth
NAMI Basics is a free, 6-week course for parents and other caregivers of children and youth with a mental health condition. The course is taught by trained parents. It is designed to provide the fundamentals of caring for you, your family and your child with mental health needs. All instruction and course materials are free for class participants.
We offer NAMI Family Support Groups that are specifically for parents who have children and youth with mental health needs. They are 90-minute weekly support groups run by parents with children and youth who have mental health needs, for other parents and caregivers with children and youth with mental health needs. These groups provide a place that offers respect, understanding, encouragement, and hope.
We strive to serve as a source of support and information for youth and young adults with mental health needs and their families. Access a number of fact sheets and webinars that provide information on topics and services that are relevant to parents who have children and youth with mental health needs, as well as youth and young adults with mental health needs.
