Not too long ago Marvin and I got involved with the Connecticut Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI CT). Given our own family situation, we participated in an education program called
“ Family to Family”.
The course is designed to help all family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while maintaining their own well-being. The course was so helpful that Marvin decided to be trained to teach it. I’ve attached a flyer about the Family to Family course that Marvin will be co-teaching in our area.
Given the pervasiveness of Mental Illness ( one in four people know someone suffering from a mental illness) I hope that you will pass along this information to someone you know. Family to Family is a terrific program and please help us get the word out about it in our SE Connecticut community. And it’s free.
