NAMI Homefront is a free, 6-session program for family, friends, and significant others of Military Service Members and Veterans. The class helps families understand what the Service Member/Veteran is experiencing related to trauma, combat stress, civilian life transition, PTSD, and other mental health conditions.
The program is designed to help family members understand and support their Service Member/Veteran while maintaining their own well-being. NAMI Homefront leaders have personal experience with mental health conditions impacting their Service Member/Veteran.
The class is free but you are expected to attend all six sessions. You must have access to a laptop, PC, or tablet with a stable internet connection to participate. To hear audio, you will need to call in via telephone. We recommend you use a headset or headphones.
An application process is required to ensure this program is a good fit. Space is limited.
