When? Mondays, at 1:00pm to 3:00pm for 8 weeks, starting on April 28, 2014

NAMI Brown County Accepting Registration for the “Basics” Educational Program
NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role families play in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also the parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 13.
NAMI Brown County, the local organization of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will offer its
NAMI Basics Education Program beginning April 30, 2014.
It will be held on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:30 pm
