Family to Family Classes Beginning

Fall is just around the corner, and that means NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania's Fall Family-to-Family Education Classes will be starting soon. Sponsored by NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania and NAMI Pennsylvania, the Family-to-Family Education Program is a free, 11-week course held in March and September for families and friends of individuals with brain disorders called serious mental illness. The course is taught by trained family members who have lived with this experience. Many family members describe this program as a life-changing experience.
