HISTORY OF NAMI FAMILY-TO-FAMILY EDUCATION
In April, 1993, NAMI Illinois (one of six states) adopted the
Journey of Hope Education Program. The name was changed to NAMI
FAMILY-TO-FAMILY EDUCATION PROGRAM in 1998. Today, 49 states
offer NAMI'S FTF free 12-week education program to families who have
loved ones with mental illness.
NAMI's FTF Education Program, written by Joyce C. Burland, Ph.D.,
clinical psychologist and family member, has received national acclaim
for this remarkable education in mental illness program. Many graduates
of Family-to-Family Education in Kane County and throughout the nation
have told us that there lives have been changed through the 12-week
series of in-depth classes. More than 350,00 family members have
benefited since 1993.
NAMI Kane County completed its first 12-week course in Spring,
1994. Since that time, NAMI KC trained teachers have taught more than
twenty - 12-week courses.
