NAMI Family/Caregiver Support Group Facilitators NEEDED!
WE NEED TWO VOLUNTEERS!!!!

NAMI Family Group facilitators are trained NAMI leaders who lead NAMI Family Support Groups. They play an important role in ensuring that all Family participants feel welcomed and supported.

NAMI Family Facilitators are family members of individuals living with mental illnesses. They are at a point in their own family’s recovery that they are able to “give back” to others. During groups, using NAMI-trained methods, they empathize with and encourage family members who are journeying through the symptoms, setbacks and treatments that are a part of their loved-one’s illness.

A NAMI Family Facilitator ensures that the group shares responsibility for maintaining guidelines, sustains clear participant boundaries, clarifies goals, and reinforces communication skills that encourage group participation.

Think you would make a great support group facilitator? Free training is provided by NAMI.  CONTACT US TODAY: namiwaco@gmail.com
