NAMI Homefront Fall Courses

What is the NAMI Homefront Education Program?

NAMI Homefront is a free, six-session education program for family, friends and significant others of Military Service Members and Veterans with mental health conditions. It focuses on the unique needs of military and veteran communities, such as post-deployment and post-discharge transitions.

The course is designed to help family members understand and support their loved one while maintaining their own well-being. The trained teachers of this course are also family members and know what it is like to have a loved one living with mental illness. To register for Fall 2015 NAMI Homefront Courses, please see the attached flyer for more details.

Helping Military Families: "A Handbook for Family & Friends of Service Members Before, During and After Deployment"

More than 1.6 million men and women have served in Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001. Almost half of these heroes are married, and almost half have children - most of whom are five years and younger. Our service members make great sacrifices overseas, but so do the friends, families and loved ones they leave behind.

A new one-of-a-kind resource handbook and video is being made available to servicemembers’ families and friends, courtesy of an independent film production company, Vulcan Productions, owned by philanthropist Paul G. Allen. The handbook and video aim to help families and friends prepare for the emotional challenges encountered before, during and after deployment

Together in partnership with the representatives from the U.S. military, leading researchers and clinicians and veteran service organizations from around the country, Paul G. Allen's Vulcan Productions is honored to release a new multimedia resource to serve these military families: "A Handbook for Family & Friends of Service Members Before, During and After Deployment"
