Participant Perspectives

NAMI Homefront is an adaptation of the evidence-based NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program, which has been taught in VA health facilities since the late 1990's. Graduates of NAMI Homefront say:

"It's the first step I have taken to get more involved personally with the VA. The first step I have taken to take care of me." ​ 

                 -​Mother of a Veteran  

"I realized I saw signs and symptoms of PTSD but did not know how to handle my loved one --  I know better how to handle situations."
      -Spouse of a Veteran  

If you are the family or friend of a Military Service Member or Veteran experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition (PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc.) NAMI Homefront offers vital information, support, communications skills and resources.
