Adapted from a National Alliance on Mental Illness of Western Massachusetts (NAMI-WM) press release:

NAMI-WM, the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), will offer its free, 12 week, "Family to Family" Education Course, for families, partners, or friends of individuals living with mental illness, beginning Saturday, September 12th, from 9AM to 11:30AM, in Northampton.  The classes will run Saturday mornings through November 21st.  While NAMI hopes to bring this program to Greenfield in the future, for now Northampton is the closest location.
