NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) periodically offers useful classes to family members of persons with mental illness. This upcoming class looks particularly useful for Baltimore area families of children suffering from mental illness. NAMI is also a good general resource to call upon when trying to find resources about depression, anxiety, grief, ADHD, and other sources of concern.
This six session course is taught by trained teachers who are also parents/caregivers of individuals who developed mental health issues in childhood. The curriculum discusses current information about the major childhood mental illnesses and provides the fundamentals a caregiver needs to care for themselves, their family, and their child who is living with a mental illness.
