Visions for Tomorrow (Developed with the support of NAMI Texas)
Visions for Tomorrow consists of a series of workshops for direct primary caregivers of children and adolescents with brain disorders. Teachers of the program are trained family members who have experienced firsthand the rewards and challenges of raising children with brain disorders. The course offers caregivers an opportunity to share mutual experiences and learn valuable lessons from one another. The program covers educational material and provides the basics for day-to-day care giving skills. The program has been widely disseminated and used by many NAMI state and affiliate offices across the country. The Visions program has been used in over 28 states and by many NAMI state and affiliate leaders. The program continues to grow as NAMI state and affiliate leaders use it as a tool to reach families with children with mental illnesses.
