NAMI-San Antonio has a large number of programs to execute the Mission and Vision of the organization.
See their website for complete information.


One of these programs is the Family-to-Family program, a free, weekly, 8-session education program for family, partners, friends and significant others of adults living with a mental illness. The course is designed to help all family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while maintaining their own well-being. The course includes information on illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, and other mental health conditions.

In Boerne, these classes are held at St. Peter's Catholic Church. Contact Donald & Mary O'Connor for more information at 830-368-4112; ffllaagg37@msn.com.
