NAMI KDK Family To Family
Time & Location
About the Event
Family-to-Family is a free, 12 week educational program for family, significant others and
friends (17 years of age and older) of individuals recovering from a mental health condition.
It is a designated evidence-based program, and research shows that the program
significantly improves the coping skills and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to
an individual recovering from a mental health condition. It is taught by NAMI-trained family
members who also support loved ones in recovery, and includes presentations, discussion
and interactive exercises.
