That’s why NAMI Bradley County is offering With Hope in Mind, a free series of classes about coping with the issues of caring for loved ones with mental illness.
This course will begin on June 4 and will be held on consecutive Tuesdays until July 23.
With Hope in Mind teaches helpful skills such as problem management, communication and crisis planning, and provides you with coping skills for dealing with the cycles of various illnesses.
Conducted in an atmosphere of confidentiality, With Hope In Mind classes offer participants practical and emotional support.
One in five Tennesseans is affected a mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorder or eating disorder.
The With Hope In Mind curriculum addresses these common illnesses. NAMI volunteers who have been trained as course instructors and have personal experience caring for someone with mental illness teach the course.
There is no charge for the course, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Learn more about With Hope in Mind at www.namitn.org
NAMI Bradley County is made up of friends and family of people with long-term mental illness as well as those with a mental illness. To learn more or to register for the course, contact Michelle Randles at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-3726.
