NAMI Knoxville has trained volunteers to teach the NAMI signature classes below.
***NEW*** We hope to have a NAMI Basics class in January. If you are interested, please contact Alison Dusch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NAMI Basics is a 6-session education program for parents, caregivers and other family who provide care for youth (ages 22 and younger) who are experiencing mental health symptoms. This program is free to participants, 99% of whom say they would recommend the program to others.
NAMI Family-to-Family is a free 8-session course for families, partners, and friends of individuals with mental illness. The course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of mental illness, increase coping skills and empower participants to become advocates for their family members.
NAMI In Our Own Voice is a presentation for the general public to promote awareness of mental illness and the possibility of recovery.
NAMI Ending the Silence is an in-school presentation designed to teach middle and high school students about the signs and symptoms of mental illness, how to recognize the early warning signs and the importance of acknowledging those warning signs.
