NAMI Urban Los Angeles is offering two 12-week Family-to-Family courses starting on Tuesday evenings January 7th in Leimert Park and Saturday mornings starting January 11th at West Angeles Church. The interactive class, designed to help family members understand and support their ill relative while maintaining their own well being, is taught by trained family members who have first-hand experience living with a loved one with a serious mental illness.
The Saturday class will focus on families who have family members or loved ones, either involved or at risk of becoming involved with the criminal justice system. This also includes those families who have loved ones with brain disorders who are returning to the community under realignment.
