NAMI Basics Education Program

NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role family plays in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 13. 

NAMI San Antonio, the local organization of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will once again offer its NAMI Basics Education Program at Clarity Child Guidance. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings beginning May 2nd through June 6th from 6:30-9:00 PM. Please call the NAMI office at 210-734-3349 to register. 

Participant Perspectives: 
"This is such a great step by step program that walks parents every step of the way. It is as if you are holding their hand through it all."
"The course is inclusive of almost all aspects of child and family resources. I could have spent a lifetime getting all of this information on my own. I feel supported, strong and ready to go forward." 
"NAMI Basics bridges the gap. It provides help that can't be found in a doctor's office."

Cyberbullying Workshop: What Can We Do? A Conversation for Parents and Teens

Because of the increased media exposure of our children, cyberbullying is more prevalent and powerful than ever before. It can have devastating consequences for the victims. While almost 50% of teens have been victims, only 1 in 10 teens tell their parents and fewer than 1 in 5 incidents are reported to police. Its why parents need to be vigilant. Please join us to learn more about cyberbullying and what you and your teens can do about it. 

TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE: 
-How to avoid cyber bullying altogether, healthy relationship habits
-What if you have been cyber bullied?
-What if you are the bully?
-What can parents do proactively?
