As well as support groups that meet all around the city, NAMI Seattle (NS) offers a free 12-week course taught by two trained volunteer teachers who themselves have a family member or loved one with a mental illness. The focus of this course is to significantly improve the coping and problem-solving skills for family members of people with serious and persistent mental illness. For information about the next series, please visit the NAMI website - www.namiseattle.org and click on “Get Support.”
Also available on the Get Support drop-down menu are a list of Support Groups, Crisis Hotline numbers as well as NAMI Seattle's own Helpline.
ROADMAP is a comprehensive self-help and resource guide published by NS and available for purchase.
