NAMI Basics Teacher Application
Each NAMI Basics Teacher trainee MUST meet all of the following criteria:
- Be a parent/primary caregiver of an individual who exhibited symptoms of a mental illness prior to age 13 (formal diagnosis may have been made years later, but symptoms were present prior to age 13)
- Be an active member of NAMI
There is no prerequisite that a prospective teacher has to have taken the NAMI Basics course, however, it is STRONGLY SUGGESTED that you have.
