Supporting Recovery

When someone has a mental health condition, support from family can make a big difference. However, it may be hard for family members to know what approach is best. It can be especially difficult to balance caring for your own health with encouraging others to be responsible for their actions. It's a process, be kind to yourself. 

Finding My Community

"Now, I find joy in every day. Recovery from a mental illness is not linear, and is often a struggle, but that won’t derail my progress. I may have an episode, but I have NAMI, my friends and family, and my coworkers to support me."

Training & Education

NAMI offers education and training programs throughout the year including the Family-to-Family and Peer-to-Peer education programs, Family and Friends, and Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid.
