Pittsfield: NAMIBC registering for family education classes
National Alliance on Mental Illness Berkshire County is now registering participants for Family-to-Family Education classes starting in January.
Family-to-Family is a free 12-week course about illnesses of the brain such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, bi-polar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders.
It is designed primarily for family members, friends and caregivers of individuals with these illnesses.
Up-to-date information about diagnosis, medications, treatment options, crisis planning, accessing services, self-care, coping skills and the power of advocacy will be covered by trained volunteers.
All instruction and course materials are provided without cost to participants.
