The Illinois Tri-County Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness will sponsor a "Family to Family" Class.

This course is for families, friends, and caregivers of adults with mental illnesses.

The free 12 week course is taught by trained family members who provide handouts at each class. All types of mental illnesses are covered, as well as the biology of the brain and new research. Empathy, communication skills, self-care, and advocacy initiatives are also included.

Classes are held twice a year, starting in March and September.

This class will begin at 6:30-9 p.m. Sept. 4 in Peoria (Proctor).  

Please call the NAMI office 693-0541 for more information or to register for an upcoming class ASAP.
