NAMI Basics for Parents & Caregivers
*Now registering for Spring 2018*
Has your child or adolescent been diagnosed with ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder or other emotional and/or behavioral difficulties? Is your child or adolescent having trouble in school and you feel that something is wrong, but you are just not sure what it is or what you should do about it? We understand because we have been there too.
NAMI Basics is an educational program for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental, emotional and behavioral difficulties. It covers the fundamentals of caring for yourself, for your family and for your child. Programs are offered in English and Spanish. There is no cost, but advance registration is required. For more information or to register, go to the NAMI Rockland website: www.namirockland.org/namibasics.html or call (845) 359-8784.
