NAMI Basics - Developed by NAMI National

NAMI Basics is a new NAMI national signature education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illness.  The six session course is taught by trained teachers who are also parents/caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness in childhood.  The course provides the fundamentals a caregiver needs to care for themselves, their family, and their child who is living with a mental illness.
