Mental health alliance offers basic caregiver skills classes

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 Tuesday, Feb. 13.

NAMI Basics offers education and support. Taught by parents who have lived similar experiences with their own children, NAMI Basics is an educational program that provides learning and practical insight for families.

NAMI Basics is presented in six, 2-1/2 hour sessions at no cost to participants thanks to United Way sponsorship.

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.

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 Tuesday between Feb. 13 and March 20 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Please call 979-0512 or email to register or with additional questions. Pre-registration is required.
