A series of 12 weekly classes structured to help caregivers understand and support individuals with serious mental illness while maintaining their own well being.

  • The course is taught by a team of trained NAMI family member volunteers who know what it’s like to have a loved one struggling with one of these brain disorders.
  • There is no cost to participate in the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program.

Over 300,000 people in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Italy have completed this course.  We think you will be pleased how much assistance the program offers.

  1. My name is Hannah Flaherty, I’m a 28 year old disabled woman living in Bend Oregon and I was hoping to qualify for your Peer to Peer Recovery Education Class, or to at least inquire for more information. Is there a place I should sign up? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

  2. Hannah,

    We are hoping to start a class very soon in Bend. We are beginning a waiting list and when we have a enough enrolled we will be excited to begin. Is a daytime, early afternoon class good for you? Let me know if we can put you on our list?

    Looking forward!

  3. I am interested in the Peer to Peer recovery Group, too. An evening class is best for me, or anytime on Fridays

  4. Great! I will put you on our roster for a an evening/late afternoon class. We hope it will be filled enough to start in early March or even sooner and will keep you posted along the way.

    Lookig Forward!


  5. Great to know that anytime Fridays will work for you in case we con’t have enough for an evening class. Thank you for letting us know that since that will help getting our next class available as soon as possible!

  6. I’d be interested in applying for a training program to lead a peer to peer class. Is there a possibility of this?

  7. Great to know that you are interested in the goal of leading a Peer-to-Peer Class. We encourage you to enroll and complete a Certificate in our Spring Peer-to-Peer Class which would qualify you for the next up-coming Peer-to-Peer training , most likely in the early fall.
