The National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI Cape & Islands) is proud to announce that it is bringing Homefront to Massachusetts! Coming September 29th and 30th, NAMI is offering a free, two-day training for individuals to become NAMI Homefront facilitators.

Based on the Family-to-Family model of education, Homefront is a six-week course for family members who are coping with issues specific to military-related challenges.

-Have a relative who is a Service Member or Veteran with symptoms of a mental illness/mental health condition (includes PTSD & TBI).

-Be a Service Member or Veteran AND have a relative with a mental health condition (the relative with a mental illness need not be a Service Member or Veteran but the NAMI Home Front Teacher MUST have a personal/family connection to the military).

-Have a relative who is a Service Member or Veteran AND have a relative with a mental health condition (the relative with a mental illness need not be a Service Member or Veteran but all NAMI Homefront teachers MUST have a personal/family connection to the military).
