                    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.    

             NAMI'S FAMILY-TO-FAMILY PROGRAM IS NOW AN EVIDENCE-BASED PROGRAM
