NAMI Basics will be offered in Acton starting Wednesday, October16. Classes meet 7-9:30PM, weekly for 6 weeks. There is no cost to the participants and all course materials are provided by NAMI.
The NAMI Basics program is specially designed for parents and other caregivers of adolescents and children living with emotional or behavioral challenges. The course is taught by trained volunteer teachers who themselves are parents/caregivers of children living with emotional difficulties. This structure creates an intimacy that few programs possess and consequently, a program whose capacities are unparalleled. It is an evidence-based program recognized nationwide.
Please view the flyer for more details, including how to sign up.
