What is the NAMI Homefront Education Program?
NAMI Homefront is a free, six-session class for families, caregivers and friends of Military Service Members and Veterans. The course helps participants understand the challenges Military Service Members/Veterans are 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 course is designed to increase understanding and advocacy skills while helping participants maintain their own well-being.
