BASICS is a new education program for parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses. Designed to give parents the tools to make the best possible decisions. The course consists of six classes, each lasting for 2 ½ hours.
- To give the parent/caregiver the basic information necessary to take the best care possible of their child, their family, and themselves.
- To help the parent/caregiver cope with the impact that mental illness has on the child living with the illness and the entire family.
- To provide tools for the parent/caregiver to use even after completing the program that will assist in making the best decisions possible for the care of the child.
- The NAMI Basics course is taught by trained teachers who are the parents of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness prior to the age of 13 years.
