Featured Family-to-Family Testimonials

Christina Halli, a graduate from the Erie County Family-to-Family program, shared these emotions when her son was diagnosed with a brain disorder:

I know that mental illness negatively impacts the whole family. At age eight, my son began seeing a child psychologist for behavior issues. At age 12, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Initially, I was overwhelmed. Then I realized I needed to learn about mental illness so I could advocate on my son’s behalf. I enrolled in the Family-to-Family program and it has made a huge difference in my life. I feel like I now have the knowledge needed to better care for my son. Also, I am more familiar with community resources available for families like mine. Finally, it has helped me build a support group of people with similar family challenges. I highly recommend NAMI’s Family-to-Family course.”
