The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Berkshire County's next Family-to-Family class will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Oct. 14. This eight-week course will be held virtually via Zoom. There will be no class the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Family-to-Family is a class for families, partners and friends of individuals over age 18 living with a mental illness. The free course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of mental illnesses, increase coping skills and empower participants to become advocates for their family members.

The course is taught by trained family members who have lived with this experience, and will include current information about self-care, communication skills and making choices for recovery.
