NAMI Basics Webinar on Transition –
Society says “ADULT”, we say “they are still our children”: Learning to let go


Copies of these handouts should be made for each participant.  Handouts may be distributed to participants as they enter the room, or individually as they are discussed in the presentation.  If time is a factor, distributing them at the beginning is a better option, since handing out materials can eat away at presentation time.
