NAMI Provider

NAMI Provider Education program

NAMI Provider introduces mental health professionals to the unique perspectives of people with mental health conditions and their families. You’ll develop enhanced empathy for their daily challenges and recognize the importance of including them in all aspects of the treatment process.

NAMI Provider is a 15-hour program of in-service training taught by a team consisting of an adult with a mental health condition, a family member and a mental health professional who is also a family member or has a mental health condition themselves.

What You’ll Gain

  • Understanding of the realities of having a mental health condition
  • Increased compassion for the vulnerabilities people face when seeking care
  • Recognition of your critical role in the individual and family’s journey towards recovery
  • Empowered view of the lasting impact your care makes

What People are Saying

“When I went through the course, I kept thinking ‘what a wonderful learning experience that all our [hospital] staff need to have.’ We have worked hard over the years to create a more humanistic and compassionate culture. This program will definitely help us in that direction.” – Participant

“Most of the attendees have expressed that the course has profoundly affected their work. Many have stated that this was the best training class they have ever taken.” – Leader

Additional Resources for Providers

NAMI and the Hospital Corporation of America have collaborated together to create Competent Caring: When Mental Illness Becomes a Traumatic Eventan educational video/DVD for continuing education training for health care staff. The DVD highlights the experience of a person with a mental health condition, as well as the staff response when he seeks treatment for a mental health crisis in an emergency room setting.
