NAMI Franklin County
Mentor Program

A free, Six-Session Program Designed For Parents And Other Family Caregivers

What is the NAMI Franklin County Mentor Program?

The NAMI Franklin County Mentor Program is designed for family caregivers or peers (persons with lived experience) all bonded in a way like no other by mental health conditions. Self-care and caregiving often present challenges that could use a little help, a little guidance, or someone who can listen and understand what you’re going through. That’s where NAMI Franklin County’s Mentor Program can be of service. We can help families and peers get through the maze of “What should I do next?”

If you would like to apply to become a mentor to share your experience and provide guidance to a caregiver or peer; or, if you are a caregiver or peer who could use the help of a mentor, apply online at https://www.namifranklincounty.org/mentor-program/ .Or, you can request an application by calling NAMI Franklin County at 614-501-6264

Participant Perspectives

“The Mentor Program took a lot of stress off my shoulders by helping me sort through my problems. Just talking to the mentor boosted my spirit, reassured me, and encouraged me. I hope NAMI Franklin County receives a lot of support so that they can continue to do their amazing work – helping people who need it!.”
“I can’t thank NAMIFC enough for this life saving program. My mentor helped me during a very difficult time in my life when I felt totally alone and confused.”
