New Online Format for NAMI Parenting Class

NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties is excited to offer a new hybrid program of NAMI Basics.  The class is an education program for parents, caregivers and other family who provide full-time care for youth (ages 18 and younger) who are experiencing mental health symptoms.  With the online class, parents are free to complete the course from the comfort of their own home, on their own schedule.

NAMI Basics class will help you understand the impact mental health conditions can have on the whole family, the difference between different types of mental health care professionals, an overview of treatment options and therapies, an overview of the mental health, school and juvenile justice system. You’ll also have access to resources to help you navigate these systems, advocate for your child’s rights at school and in health care settings, how to prepare for and respond to crisis situations, and the importance of taking care of yourself.

 

You don’t have to make this journey alone. Register for NAMI Basics today.

The Columbus Dispatch https://www.dispatch.com/news/20200302/rural-ohio-struggles-with-access-to-mental-health-services

When it comes to rural parts of Ohio, stigma and access to behavioral health services are two barriers parents are forced to navigate when trying to help their child. There is only one child psychiatrist in southeast Ohio, in Athens County, and two in south central Ohio, in Lawrence County, according to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
