Family to Family    free 12-week classes

designed for family members and friends of persons with mental illness!

We completed our first class offered January 15-April 2, 2011,

and we are waiting for dates for the next class to be offered Fall, 2011! 

For more information or to sign up,

contact Patty Rutter at 


A family/friend support group as a follow-up to the Family-to-Family classes

would be a wonderful addition to our programs. 

If you would be willing to take training to be a ble to facillitate one of these groups,

please call our office to find out when the trainings might be offered. 

In the meantime,

a porton of our regular monthly affiliate meeting,

the first Tuesday of the month at Trinity Lutheran Church,

is set aside for mutual support of family members.

If you need this kind of support, please join us.



NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group

held the second Saturday each month, 12-1:30pm

at New Light MCC, 40 W. Church St., Hagerstown.


We would like to offer the Peer-to-Peer Program,

a free 10-week program for persons with a mental illness,

sometime in the near future,

 but first we need several consumers to get the training.

please e-mail San Rogers at
