NAMI Gulf Coast is proud to announce our newest education program:
Great Minds Think Alike
Education for Adolescents ages 12-17 with mental illnesses.
GMTA was designed by NAMI Texas to provide youth, ages 13-18 diagnosed with a mental illness, with the skills necessary to take a leadership role in their own recovery and to aid others who suffer from the symptoms of mental illness. Through GMTA, youth begin to understand their symptoms; positive and appropriate interventions for their symptoms; and through the interventions, a reduction in the stigma they face. One goal of this program is to empower youth with mental illness to understand their own needs, take an active role in their treatment and recovery, support other youth who have similar symptoms, and provide input in all appropriate venues as to what it is like to be a youth with mental health needs. GMTA also helps these students identify the type of supports they need to be successful, productive members of society.
Topics include: understanding personal needs, managing illness, & relapse prevention.
No charge for classes & lunch provided.
Classes are scheduled for:
July 28th (Tuesday), 29th (Wednesday), August 4th (Tuesday) & 5th (Wednesday)
