Family-to-Family is a free 12-week course for family members and caregivers of individuals with a severe mental illness. It is designed to facilitate a better understanding of mental illness and to increase coping and advocacy skills.

The class is taught by two NAMI-trained volunteers who have been there. It includes presentations, discussion, interactive exercises, and a guest speaker.

NAMI Aurora also offers an educational program called Caminantes. It is specially designed to meet the cultural and linguistic needs of our Latino families in Aurora.

Caminantes is conducted in Spanish with attention placed on the influence of cultural values and special needs of Latino families.
