Family-to-Family


  • We Care of Grundy County 530 Bedford Rd. MORRIS United States (map)

We Care is teaming up with Morris Hospital Foundation and NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) for a FREE 12 week program called Family-to-Family. This program is for caretakers of a loved one who has a mental illness and is taught by NAMI  trained instructors who have been there, who understand what you are going through, because they have gone through it, too.

NAMI Family-to-Family not only provides information and strategies for taking care of the person you love, but you'll also find out that you're not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope.

The group setting of NAMI Family-to-Family provides mutual support and shared positive impact—experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation.

 

 In the program, you'll learn about: how to solve problems and communicate effectively; taking care of yourself and managing your stress; supporting your loved one with compassion; finding and using local supports and services; up-to-date information on mental health conditions and how they affect the brain; how to handle a crisis; current treatments and therapies; and the impact of mental health conditions on the entire family.

If you are looking for help, if you are looking for change,  if you have a loved one with mental illness…Family-to-Family can help.

 

This free program begins Tuesday, August 27th from 6-8:30pm. Childcare and meals will be provided.
