This training course is for mental health professionals, case managers, residential care givers, front office staff, R.N.’s, psychologists, homeless outreach workers, vocational rehabilitation and job counselors, club house programmers, psychiatrists, therapists, and all those who serve individuals with serious mental illness.
The purpose of the program is to help service providers better understand and support individuals with serious mental illnesses and their families.
The Provider Education Program is a series of 5 weekly classes, taught by a trained five member team consisting of:
two Family-to-Family instructors
two Provider Education Program-trained consumers
and one mental health professional.
The NAMI Provider Education course is currently being taught in 21 states. Over 4000 mental health providers across the United States have participated in this program; nearly all described how their own clinical practices had changed in response to what they learned in this class.
