What is the NAMI Homefront Education Program?
NAMI Homefront is a free, six-session class for family, friends and significant others of Military Service Members and Veterans. The class helps families comprehend what the Military Service Member/ Veteran is experiencing related to trauma, combat stress, civilian life, PTSD and other mental health conditions.

The course is designed to help family members understand and support their Military Service Member or Veteran while maintaining their own well-being. The trained teachers of this course are also military/Veteran families who have a loved one with a mental health condition. 

NAMI Homefront online classes are scheduled for:
September 8 – October 13, 2016 (six consecutive Thursdays from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. ET)
September 12 – October 17, 2016 (six consecutive Mondays from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. ET)
