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 Yolo in now able to make this program available to specific groups of professional caregivers as well, to help them understand the impact that mental health conditions have on the youth as well as the family. The information shared in NAMI Basics will equip professional caregivers with unique insights that can enable them to work more collaboratively with families as part of the treatment plan. The first class in Yolo is being offered this fall. Registration is required.
