Basics Workshop
Thank you for your interests in Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley's Basics series. This six-week program is for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents living with emotional and behavioral issues.

Basics is taught by understanding teachers who are or were parents or caregivers of children with similar issues. Taking Basics will give you the tools you will need to help you make the best decisions possible for the care of your child. You will learn communication tips, how to problem-solve and the skills to help you cope with the emotional impact of caring for your challenging child. You will find out about the IEP process, insurance, benefits, diagnoses and treatment.

The course consists of six classes, each lasting for 2 ½ hours. Classes will be offered weekly for six consecutive weeks. A light dinner is provided, and childcare is available for children only (children age 11 or younger who can work in a group care setting). All instruction materials are FREE to participants.

Space is limited. Please complete this interest form, and a staff member at MHARV will contact you soon about the availability of a class or whether you have been placed on a waiting list. We allow participants on a first-come, first-serve basis but will take entries for our waiting list all year long.

The spring session of NAMI Basics will be held on the following dates from 6-8:30pm: May 3, May 10, May 17, May 24, May 31, and June 7, 2018. Will you be able to attend the sessions on those dates? *
