NAMI Basics

Last weekend NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania's Associate Director Debbie Ference and NAMI volunteer Denise Michaels attended a NAMI Basics training in Philadelphia.

NAMI Basics is the new signature education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses. The NAMI Basics course is taught by trained teachers who are the parent or other caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness prior to the age of 13 years.

NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania is eager to bring NAMI Basics to the southwestern Pa. region in addition to its other education programs.
