The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization, will begin a free, 12-week course starting today and going through November 20 at the College of Mount St. Joseph.  This course is geared toward family caregivers of adults with mental illness, and will teach the knowledge and skills that family members need to cope more effectively.
