NAMI Family-to-Family 20th Anniversay Tribute Book
You are invited to contribute as we celebrate the exceptional journey of the Family-to-Family (F2F) Education program at the NAMI Convention in Chicago. We kick-off the celebration during the Research Plenary at which time Joyce Burland, Ph.D. will receive the NAMI Distinguished Services Award.
“The story of Family-to-Family, NAMI’s educational program for families of people living with mental illness, is a story that has spread through the grassroots grapevine…No other national peer-taught course has ever reached this stage of being recognized as an evidence-based practice. If we are now able to say that our twelve-week course lowers participants’ ratings of anxiety, distress and depression, it is because our volunteer work force has been so dedicated to maintaining the fidelity of a program that enables families to come out of the dark and deal much more directly with the realities that they have – a change in consciousness that would sound mystical if you didn’t know how much on-the-ground work it takes.”
