NAMI Austin is offering a free 12-week program for family members of adults who have a mental health diagnosis. “Family-to-Family” classes will be held from 3-5:30 p.m. Sundays starting August 12 at Georgetown Health Foundation Community Rooms. The peer-led classes are designed to help family members understand and support their loved one living with a mental health diagnosis while maintaining their own well-being. You can learn more at namiaustin.org/family-to-family.
Because religion and spirituality often play a vital role in healing, families and individuals experiencing mental health issues often turn to a faith leader first for help. Faith leaders should be trained and equipped to handle these mental health concerns to the best of their ability. Bridges to Hope provides that training. The next workshop will be Saturday, August 4 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 at San Gabriel Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (1322E University Ave, Georgetown). Learn more at namiaustin.org/bridgestohope.
