Fall session of Supportive Family Training

The fall class in Supportive Family Training will begin on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, at the offices of ACCESS CNY (formerly Transitional Living Services).  The 12 week class meets weekly from 6:00 pm to 8:00pm. at 420 East Genesee St., the offices of ACCESS CNY.

Supportive Family Training is offered at no charge to the parents, siblings, adult children, spouses and partners  and friends of persons diagnosed with serious psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, serious depression, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder). Although there is a waiting list for this class, as we get closer to the starting date there may be cancelations.

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Patricia Hetrick, MSW, the assistant director of The Family Support & Education Center, if they are interested in becoming part of the class. Her direct number is 315-218-0816.

Harvest Hopela is NAMI Syracuse’s major fundraiser of the year made possible due to the generosity of many individuals and companies.

Mental illness is still a topic people shy away from discussing. How do we try to tackle the stigma if we don’t bring it to people’s attention through education, personal stories of recovery and promoting the hope of recovery? Harvest Hopela is another tactic in the effort to inform our community of the supports available to families.

Tickets available here.
