CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - NAMI Clermont County and NAMI Hamilton County, area chapters of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will be offering its well-regarded class, NAMI Basics, beginning on March 2.
NAMI Basics is a three day education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illness. Classes will be held starting Saturday, March 2, 9, 16, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Beech Acres Children’s Center.
The class uses a curriculum developed by the professional staff at NAMI’s national offices, and it is taught by volunteers who have successfully completed NAMI’s teacher training program and who have a family member with mental illness themselves. Recent studies have shown the class to be effective in helping families cope with the mental illness of their family member.
