The Daily Record - 8/18/2019
WOOSTER — NAMI Wayne and Holmes Counties, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will offer its Signature Family-to-Family education program for the fall, beginning Sept. 14.
This is a free 12-session program for friends and family members of people living with mental illness. It will be held Saturday mornings from 9-11:30 a.m. at the NAMI office, 2525 Back Orrville Road. Transportation will be provided to those who need it.
This course is beneficial for families of individuals with bipolar disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, borderline personality disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder or co-occurring brain disorders.
The course provides a broad perspective that will help parents, spouses, siblings and adult children better understand and support loved ones living with mental illness, while taking care of their own needs.
“NAMI offers help and hope to families,” said NAMI executive director Helen Walkerly. “People who take the course describe it as life-changing. It is taught by trained family members who themselves have loved ones living with mental illness. They know firsthand what families face.”
The course is free but registration is required. For more information or to register for the course, contact Dawn Ross at email@example.com or call 330-264-1590.
