NAMI includes over 1,200 affiliates in every state who join together to meet the NAMI mission through support, advocacy, education, and research for people with mental illness, their families and friends.

NAMI Basics is a free, six-session, peer-directed education program developed specifically for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents who have either been diagnosed with a mental illness or who are experiencing symptoms but have not yet been diagnosed. All teachers have received the national NAMI training.  A separate series of the six sessions is available to professional caregivers. Connect to this video link regarding the course.
