Family to Family Class

Please help by forwarding this to anyone you know who would be interested, or who may know of someone else who suffers from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder (manic depression) severe depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, or other mental illnesses.  Please give them my name, telephone number and email address so that they might have the opportunity to take this course.

The Family-to-Family course which is offered twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall, meets for 12 weeks.  The course is held at the Family Services Center Conference Room, 21450 Gibralter Drive,, Port Charlotte, FL.  This course is designed to help the well family member of someone with mental illness (schizophrenia, bipolar or manic depression, severe depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, etc.)  There is no cost involved to the participants except a commitment to attend and learn and share and hopefully to advocate for better understanding and treatment of mental illness.

I took this 12-week course several years ago and can truly say that there is nothing that has helped me and my family as much as this course.  After completing the course, I decided that I wanted to be able to help others by taking training to also lead/facilitate a class so that we could have the course offered at least twice a year. 

The class is led by family members who have a loved one with one of the mental illnesses mentioned and is for the well family members.  This is a volunteer effort with materials supplied by NAMI of Charlotte County.  Hopefully, some of you will also take training to lead/facilitate a class, so that we can continue to help others.

Seating is limited; register by calling, Pascale Iliou, 941-268-8033, or emailing:  namiccfl@hotmail.com.
