Participant Perspectives

This is such a great step by step program that walks parents every step of the way. It is as if you are holding their hand through it all.

The course is inclusive of almost all aspects of family and child resources. I could have spent a lifetime getting all this information on my own. I feel supported, strong and ready to go forward.

NAMI Basics bridges the gap. It provides help that cant be found in a doctors office.
