NAMI Home Front for Families of Veterans now Available for Registration

NAMI Homefront is a free, six-session class for family, friends and significant others of Military Service Members and Veterans.

Topics covered include mental health, communication, handling crises, treatment and recovery.  REGISTRATIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR CLASSES STARTING 1 OCTOBER!  See below:

The program is designed to help family members understand and support their Service Member/Veteran while maintaining their own well-being. NAMI Homefront leaders have personal experience with mental health conditions impacting their Service Member/ Veteran. The class is free but you are expected to attend all six sessions.

Participant Perspectives

NAMI Homefront is an adaptation of the evidence-based NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program, which has been taught in VA health facilities since the late 1990s. Graduates of NAMI Homefront say:

“It’s the first step I have taken to get more involved personally with the VA. The first step I have taken to take care of me.”

Mother of a Veteran

I realized I saw signs and symptoms of PTSD but did not know how to handle my loved one – I know better how to handle situations.”
