    NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley offers free nationally-developed education programs that teach families to cope, communicate and effectively advocate for a loved one living with a mental health condition.

    NAMI Family-to-Family private education program will be held eight Monday evenings beginning April 5 at Musser Public Library, Muscatine.  The course is designed for family members, significant others and friends of adults living with a mental health condition. Course topics include family response to trauma, diagnosis and dealing with critical periods, problem solving, communications skills, and self-care for caregivers. The program is taught by trained family members who have lived experience. Register at www.namigmv.org/register.

    These programs are made possible by a grant from the Muscatine Health Support Granting Fund. NAMI is partnering with the Muscatine Department of Public Health to promote early detection and treatment for mental health conditions. To learn more about NAMI programs visit www.namigmv.org.
