NAMI sponsors series of classes on dealing with mental illness
The National Alliance on Mental Illness in Clallam County will sponsor a Family-to-Family Education Program beginning Saturday, April 12.
This free, 12-week course is designed to meet the needs of family members and close friends of an adult who is living with a mental illness.
The course will meet from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Port Angeles at Olympic Medical Center, 939 Caroline St., each Saturday.
Information on bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders and co-occurring disorders will be presented, along with coping skills for handling crises and relapse.
Other topics include current brain research, treatment and medication options, listening and communication techniques, and self-care for caregivers.
The course is facilitated by trained family member volunteers. Curriculum for these classes was written by an experienced family member/mental health professional.
Class size is limited, so early registration is advised.
