Family-to-Family

Family-to-Family is a free 12-week course for family caregivers of individuals with severe mental illnesses that discusses the clinical treatment of these illnesses and teaches the knowledge and skills that family members need to cope effectively. Family-to-Family offers resources, insights, coping skills, and genuine support for families. Our volunteer teachers equip the class participants with the knowledge they need to navigate the mental health system.

The programs are taught by family members; people who have lived the journey and can relate on a personal level to those seeking knowledge and comfort. These volunteers are trained by NAMI Mass according to the best practices instituted by NAMI National. The highest standards are maintained by this practice and are governed by the oversight of each program’s Steering Committee and the Education Committee.

NAMI Family-to-Family: Evidence Meets Experience By Ken Duckworth, M.D., NAMI Medical Director summarizes the findings of a randomized study conducted of the Peer-taught Family to Family Education Program which states there’s evidence that Family to Family is effective for enhancing coping and empowerment of families of persons with mental illness (Psychiatric Services 62:591–597, 2011) Outcomes of a Randomized Study of a Peer-Taught Family-to-Family Education Program for Mental Illness (PDF).
