Educational Classes

Led by trained individuals and family members who have their own “lived experience” and personal journey with mental illness and recovery, NAMI DuPage classes provide a wealth of knowledge about mental illness and recovery that complements professional treatment.

Family to Family

Family to Family is a free 12 week evidence based program in which families, partners, and friends of individuals are taught about many aspects of mental illness and their treatment, including common emotional reactions and constructive responses to the trauma of mental illness.

Basics

NAMI Basics is a free 6 week program for parents and other caregivers of children in High School or younger (generally under the age 18) who have been diagnosed with severe mental illness or emotional disturbance or who are experiencing symptoms but have not yet been diagnosed.
