Classes offered to caregivers of youths with mental illness

NAMI Fond du Lac, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), announces that the start date for NAMI Basics has been set for Monday, Jan. 23.

Basics is a free, six-session educational for parents and family caregivers of children and teens who are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or whom have already been diagnosed. The course is taught by a trained team with lived experience; they know what you’re going through because they’ve been there.

Three out of four caregivers report having high levels of stress. Research shows that the Basics program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition.

Recovery is a journey, and there is hope. The group setting of NAMI Basics provides mutual support and shared positive impact; you can experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation. You also can help others with your own experience.

NAMI Basics will meet at 21 E. Second St., Suite 104, Fond du Lac, every Monday between Jan. 23 and Feb. 27 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Please call 979-0512 or email to register or with additional questions. Pre-registration is required.

NAMI Fond du Lac and dedicated volunteers work to support and empower every person, young and old, touched by mental illness.
