NAMI offers classes on mental illness in children

Do you love a child with ADHD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, an eating disorder or other mental health or behavioral problems?

NAMI of Clackamas County wants to help you learn from other parents who have been there.

Parents and primary caregivers of children and adolescents with a mental health issue are invited to six free classes. Learn the fundamentals of caring for you, your family and your child with a mental illness.

Topics include the trauma of mental illness for the child and family, getting an accurate diagnosis, the medical aspects of the illness, advances in treatment, an overview of the systems involved in caring for children and teens and the importance of accurate record keeping.

The classes run from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturdays, April 5, through May 10, in Milwaukie. Pre-registration is required by contacting 503-344-5050 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
