NAMI Provider is a free, 15-hour program of in-service training taught by a team consisting of an adult with a mental health condition, a family member and a mental health professional who is also a family member or has a mental health condition themselves.

What You’ll Gain

  • Understanding the realities of having a mental health condition
  • Increased compassion for the vulnerabilities people face when seeking care
  • Recognition of your critical role in the individual and family’s journey towards recovery
  • Empowered view of the lasting impact your care  makes
