NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 8-session educational program for family, significant others, and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program.

NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there and includes presentations, discussion, and interactive exercises.
