The National Alliance on Mental Illness will again be holding its Family Education classes starting on June 4 at 6:30 p.m., at the County Office of Education, 6767 Green Valley Rd, in Placerville. This is a no-cost 11-week program for all family members and caregivers of a loved one with a mental disorder. The classes are taught by specially trained teachers, who also have family members with a mental illness. The classes are very thorough, and one will obtain an in-depth learning of all aspects of mental disorders, covering depression, Bi-polar disease and schizophrenia. Important coping skills and effective communication are reviewed, as well as crisis intervention.
Please call Jan Melnicoe at 530-677-2676, or Maureen Focht at 530-621-4834 to register.
