NAMI is hosting the pilot session of NAMI Homefront in September. This is an educational program for families, caregivers, and friends of military service members and veterans living with mental health conditions. It’s offered at no cost to participants and no formal diagnosis is required.
Based on the nationally recognized Family-to-Family program, NAMI Homefront is designed to address the unique needs of family, caregivers, and friends of those who have served or are currently serving our country. The program is taught by trained family members of veterans living with mental health conditions.
NAMI Homefront teaches participants how to manage crises, solve problems, and communicate effectively with their loved one.
The course also teaches how to develop the confidence and stamina to support your family member with compassion. There’s knowledge passed along that includes the latest research and information on mental health.
