Despite gains in the treatment and opportunities for recovery, coping with the difficulties that many people encounter in caring for a relative or friend with mental illness can be difficult.
Wendy Giebink, Executive Director of NAMI South Dakota, says the organization's Family-to-Family program can be a great help! The program is a free 12-week course for families and friends of adults living with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, anxiety disorders and borderline personality disorder.
If you'd like to register for Family-to-Family, Wendy encourages you to call NAMI South Dakota at 605-271-1871. Classes begin in September.
Caregivers not only learn a wide range of information about serious mental illness, they also learn to understand how living with these conditions affects their loved one.
