    New in July 2018 - Circle of Care Guidebook

    Recently, NAMI partnered with the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) to create the Circle of Care Guidebook, a new toolkit to provide resources and information to help  friends, family and neighbors who care for an adult with a mental health condition. The guidebook is made up of fact sheets to assist caregivers with finding help for the specific challenges that were identified by mental health caregivers from across the US who participated in the first national study on mental health caregiving, the On Pins and Needles study.

    The Circle of Care guidebook includes fact sheets that cover:

    ·        Finding the Right Provider

    ·        Communicating with Health Professionals

    ·        Getting an Accurate Diagnosis

    ·        Discharge Planning

    ·        Health Insurance

    ·        Community Services

    ·        Dealing with the Criminal Justice System

    ·        Planning for the Future

    ·        Confidentiality and Family Involvement
