Parents & Teachers As Allies
NAMI Parents and Teachers as Allies is a free, two-hour mental health education in-service for school professionals to help them better understand the signs and symptoms of emotional and behavioral difficulties that may be early warning signs of mental illnesses in children and adolescents.
The in-service program follows a structured format covering issues frequently faced by school professionals, parents and other family caregivers to give them a better understanding of:
- The early warning signs of mental illness
- The lived experience of parents raising a child with a mental illness
- The challenges that children and adolescents face when emotional and behavioral disturbances are part of their school life
