NAMI Basics

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF CARING FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR CHILD WITH MENTAL ILLNESS

What is NAMI Basics?

NAMI Basics is a free six week education course for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illness. This course is taught by trained teachers who are also parents/caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness prior to the age of 13 years.

What are the goals of the NAMI Basics program?

  • To give the parent/caregiver the fundamental information necessary to be an effective caregiver.
  • To help the parent/caregiver cope with the traumatic impact that mental illness has on the child living with the illness and the entire family.
  • To provide tools for the parent/caregiver to use even after completing the program that will assist in making the best decisions possible for the care of the child.
  • To help the parent/caregiver take the best care possible of the entire family especially themselves.
