Service Description: NAMI Bowling Green A Grassroots Voice on Mental Illness-Representing South Central Kentucky. We are a nonprofit organization of families, friends, caregivers and consumers who support each other as a way to live with and learn about mental illnesses. We have no paid staff. Consumers are the individuals who have the mental illness. We utilize volunteers for all of our community events. Education is a number 1 goal of NAMI. We use NAMI Signature Programs like Family-To-Family. This is an Education Program, free, a 12 week course for family caregivers of individuals with severe brain disorders (mental illness). The course is taught by trained family members. All instruction and course materials are free for class participants.
