(Undated) - NAMI of Southeast Indiana is offering a free 12-week class that is structured to help caregivers understand and support individuals with serious mental illnesses.
“Mental illness does not involve just one person,” said NAMI of Southeast Indiana’s Donna Griffin. “Entire families are affected. NAMI offers help and hope to families. People who take the course describe it as life-changing. It is taught by trained family caregivers who themselves have loved ones living with mental illness. They know first-hand what families face.”
If you have a family member, friend or loved one that suffers from Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Panic Disorder, OCD or Co-occurring Brain Disorders with Addictive Disorders this course will help you gain knowledge, hope and empowerment while learning to maintain your own well-being. Trained NAMI family member volunteers that know what it’s like to have a loved one struggling with one of these brain disorders teach the course.
The course provides:
Classes start on Monday, September 9th and are from 6:30-9pm. They will run for 12 consecutive weeks. Class will be held at the First Baptist Church of Aurora, which is located off U.S. 50, West of Downtown Aurora, across from the new fire station at 6060 Blair Road.
