NAMI Homefront

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

NAMI Homefront is a free, six-session class for family, friends and significant others of Military Service Members and Veterans. The class helps families comprehend what the Military Service Member/ Veteran is experiencing related to trauma, combat stress, civilian life, PTSD and other mental health conditions. Topics covered include mental health, communication, handling crises, treatment and recovery.

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. 

Now offered online!  We understand that attending an in-person class can be difficult for busy individuals and families. We now offer NAMI Homefront Online. Online classes meet weekly in a virtual classroom, so participants experience the same level of interaction and learning as traditional in-person classes. You must have access to a laptop, PC or tablet with a stable internet connection to participate. Audio will be via telephone line, a headset is recommended.

Mental Health Awareness Night at Isotopes Park

We were able to spark so many conversations with all the green ribbons we handed out during the Isotopes game on May 29th (Mental Health Awareness Night)! We were thrilled with how many people in the community stopped by our booth to discuss mental health, find resources, and learn how to get involved.

The Green Ribbon campaign aims to promote open conversations regarding mental health and to challenge the stigmas that come with it.

Great game!
