Research shows that Family-to-Family makes a big difference in the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to someone living with a mental health condition. It’s an official evidenced-based program by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Our Family-to-Family for the African American Community centers around the unique mental health struggles that face the African American and Black communities.

Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussion, and interactive exercises. The class not only provides critical information and strategies for taking care of the person you love, but you’ll also find out that you’re not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope.
The group setting of Family-to-Family provides mutual support and shared positive impact—you can experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation. You can also help others through your own experience.
“Before I took the course, I felt alone and overwhelmed dealing with my daughter’s mental illness. By taking this course, I have met others who are going through the same things I am and have learned about many resources that I never knew existed.”
“I thought my wife and I knew just about everything there is to know about the system and the illness. Boy, were we wrong. Without a doubt, this is the best support course I have had the privilege of taking part in, bar none.”
