— an announcement from NAMI Southwest CT
The six-session course starts Oct. 8 and is open to those helping care for children and adults, ages 21 or younger who are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition or who have already been diagnosed.
The NAMI Basics course will be held on Thursday mornings, from 9 to 11:45 a.m., beginning Thursday Oct. 8, 2020. The free course will take place online.
You’ll learn facts about mental health conditions and how best to support your child at home, school, and when getting medical care. You’ll also find out that you’re not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope.
The online group setting of NAMI Basics provides mutual support and shared positive impact — experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation. Sharing your own experience may help others in your class.
The NAMI Basics program was developed by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots nonprofit organization aimed at improving quality of life for people living with mental health conditions and their families. NAMI Southwest CT is the local affiliate serving lower Fairfield County.
