Visions for Tomorrow - Developed with the support of NAMI Texas

Visions for Tomorrow consists of a series of workshops for parents and direct primary caregivers of children and adolescents with mental illnesses. Teachers of the program are trained family members who have experienced firsthand the rewards and challenges of raising children with brain disorders. The course offers parents and caregivers an opportunity to share mutual experiences and learn valuable lessons from one another in a supportive environment. Young families are educated on accessing school services, IDEA, and other resources. Also included in the program are skills-building workshops in communication, problem management, coping, self-care, rehabilitation, transition, the recovery cycle, and advocacy. The program has been widely disseminated and used by many NAMI state and affiliate offices across the country. The program continues to grow as NAMI state and affiliate leaders use it as a tool to reach families with children with mental illnesses. For more information on the program, please visit the NAMI Texas website or contact their office.
