Understanding Mental Illness Through Instruction
Mental Health Education Classes and Peer-led Programs for our Community
Across the NAMI Greater Houston service area, more than 100 trained and certified volunteers bring peer-led programs to a wide variety of community settings, from churches to schools to corporations. With the unique understanding of people with lived experiences, our programs and support groups provide outstanding free education, skills training, and support. We provide these services to those who are:
- impacted by a mental health condition,
- family members of those diagnosed, or
- advocates for those working towards recovery after receiving a mental health diagnosis.
We offer education that is designed to support you and your needs. See our health education class offering below.
