Are you the parent or caregiver of a child age 17 or younger who has anxiety, depression, mood disorders, OCD, ADHD, ODD, PTSD or another brain disorder? 

NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program that helps parents and caregivers advocate for their children within school and health care settings while promoting the need for self-care, coping, and communication skills.

This program is designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. 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.
