NAMI offers class to parents of kids, teens | Events
(WMC-TV) – The local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness will launch a class next week for parents whose children suffer from a variety of disorders.
The free class, which lasts six weeks and begins June 19, will provide information on how to support kids and teens that have mental illness, behavioral disorders, autism, Aspergers, ADD or ADHD.
“Topics covered will be the ‘no fault’ approach, getting an accurate diagnosis, an overview of treatment options, the impact on family, communication, crisis management, the systems involved with your child, record keeping, advocating and team building for you and your child,” a NAMI spokesman said in a written statement.
The class will be held in Room 105 of the Church of the Holy Spirit, 2300 Hickory Crest, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
To register, contact Veronique or Sandra at NAMI Memphis at 725-0305 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
