NAMI Homefront is the newest educational course for family, caregivers and friends of military Service Members and Veterans living with mental illness. It is currently being piloted in six states with an expected expansion to other NAMI State Organizations in late 2014.
Perhaps most importantly, as a participant you can gain comfort in knowing you are not alone. Recovery is a journey and there is hope for all families and Service Members/Veterans dealing with a mental illness and the invisible wounds of war like PTSD. The in-person group experience of NAMI Homefront provides the opportunity for mutual support and positive impact. You can experience compassion and reinforcement from people who relate to your experiences. Through your participation, you have the opportunity to help others grow.
“You realize that he will never be the same having been through war. I learned how to treat him more as an adult than as a hurt child.”— Mother of a Veteran after graduating from a NAMI Family-to-Family class held at a VA clinic
“We are still friends with everyone that was in the class. There’s always and open ear and an open heart and a shoulder to cry on if you need it.” — Father of a Veteran after graduating from a NAMI Family-to-Family class held at a VA hospital
NAMI is proud to provide the Veterans & Military Resource Center for veterans and active duty military members, as well as their families, friends, and advocates.
