What is the NAMI Basics Education Program?
NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role families play in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also the parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 17.
NAMI Franklin County offers NAMI Basics free of charge to participants via Zoom. The Zoom Meeting ID and password will be supplied after participant registration is received. Visit www.namifranklincounty.org for class dates and registration information

“The course is inclusive of almost all aspects of family and child resources. I could have spent a lifetime getting all this information on my own. I feel supported, strong and ready to go forward.”
“NAMI Basics bridges the gap. It provides help that can’t be found in a doctor’s office.”
