Join us in our life-changing FAMILY to FAMILY class.
What is Family-to-Family?
Family-to-Family is free 12-week educational course designed specifically to parents, siblings, spouses, teen-age and adult children and significant others of persons dealing with mental illness…taught by trained family members with the lived experience. Over 115,00 family members have graduated from this national program.
The 2 – 1/2 hour class meets for 12 consecutive weeks, and each week’s topic builds on the previous topics covered. Therefore, it is important that participants try to attend each class.
If family members are in crisis and feel the need for support, we would encourage them to attend one of our Family Support Groups before taking the Family-to-Family educational course.
We usually offer this course in February in Evantson, March in Northfield, June in Skokie, and September in both Park Ridge and Northfield.
