    I just posted info on the O.C. difficult children Group here about a NAMI Basics class being offered in the Orange County, CA area for anyone here (lurkers included) that might want to attend.
    I HIGHLY recommend this FREE course for anyone who is starting out on the journey of raising a child with a mental illness.
    Here's highlights of the course elements:
    · The trauma of mental illness for the child and the family
    · The biology of mental illness—getting an accurate diagnosis
    · The latest research on the medical aspects of the illness and advances in treatment
    · An overview of treatment options—treatment works
    · The impact of a child’s mental illness on the rest of the family—caregivers and siblings
    · An overview of the systems involved in caring for children and teens and the importance of record keeping
