Most NAMI Signature Programs are presented free of charge. They require a commitment of time for participants and the dedicated efforts of trained volunteers who deliver them.
A twelve-week course for family members and loved ones of individuals who have a mental illness. The Bio-Psycho-Social content gives families the information they need to provide effective support. The class is presented by a teaching team.

A new NAMI signature program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental health needs. There are six 2 ½ hour sessions taught by trained teachers who have the lived experience. 

Support Groups, which meet monthly, go beyond “share and care” to problem solving and coping skills. Co-facilitators work together and address negative group dynamics with HEART.

A weekly recovery support group for people living with mental illness in which participants learn from each other’s experience and share coping strategies as they offer each other encouragement and understanding.

A recovery education presentation is given by trained consumer presenters who tell a part of their stories. Presentations can be given to any organization or group that requests speakers, and who want to learn about mental illness from a consumer’s perspective. 

Provider Workshop:  A six-hour, one-day workshop presented to professionals by trained family members, professionals and consumers.

Parents and Teachers as Allies: A two-hour in-service program on mental health education for school professionals. It includes early warning signs and how to communicate with parents so children can be linked to the services they need.
