NAMI Homefront is a free educational program for families, caregivers, and friends of Veterans and military service members with mental health differences.

Based on the nationally recognized NAMI Family-to-Family class, NAMI Homefront is designed to address the unique needs of family, caregivers and friends of those who have served or are currently serving our country. The program is taught by trained family members of Veterans/service members living with mental health differences.

  • Learn to care for yourself, including managing your stress

  • Develop the confidence and stamina to support your family member with compassion

  • Identify and access federal, state and local services
