NAMI Family to Family Class sponsored by Panim Hadashot-New Faces
October 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 12-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program. Research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition. NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises.
This invaluable learning and support opportunity was initiated by Rabbi Dov Gartenberg who is a mental health activist and advocate. He is formerly Executive Director of NAMI Juneau and is a trained Family to Family peer teacher. This course is offered at the Jewish Family Service and offers specific insights for Jewish parents and family members.
This class will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9 for 12 sessions from October 17, 2017 through January 9, 2018. The class is free, but requires preregistration. To sign up, please contact Talya Gillman at Jewish Family Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
