    My husband and I went to our first local Nami meeting . It is a support group for people dealing with family members with mental illness. They had a speaker on SSI benefits and I learned so much. We start a Parents to Parents class on Thursday. Compassion

    That sounds great! NAMI has some great programs to offer. Hope the P2P class is helpful for you.

    I'm very involved in my local chapter of NAMI. I attend a support group twice a month and will soon be trained to teach a class called NAMI Basics, which is for parents of younger children. I'm really looking forward to it.

    I'm glad you found your NAMI group helpful.
