Voices of Recovery: Episode 5



James Ramirez has served on the steering committee of NAMI's Southern Oregon affiliate and as one of NAMI's national trainers. He tells NAMI Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth about starting out as a student in classes like Family-to-Family in an effort to help his son, and how he learned methods and techniques that made a huge, positive difference.

This conversation was part of Dr. Duckworth’s research for the book, You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health–With Advice from Experts and Wisdom from Real People and Families. Hear more episodes of this and other podcasts and nami.org/podcast.
