NAMI Basics OnDemand was developed to create an informational offering that was geared toward the unique needs of parents and other family caregivers facing the challenges of mental health conditions with their children. It is available online 24/7 and covers much of the same material as the in-person course. To meet increasing demand for more convenient access to the program, NAMI created an OnDemand version of NAMI Basics, which is offered online and available 24/7.
Just like the in-person format, NAMI Basics OnDemand is free and helps parents and caregivers:
Develop confidence and stamina to support their child with compassion.
Learn about different types of mental health care professionals, available treatment options and therapies.
Prepare for crisis situations, and understand how to navigate the public mental health care, school and juvenile justice systems.
