This course is taught by a team of trained volunteer family members who understand the issues involved in having a loved one with a serious mental illness in the family.

SAMHSA, in their Family Psychoeducation Workbook for Practitioners and Clinical Supervisors, has stated "Currently, the largest national mental illness advocacy organization, NAMI, has promulgated the message that families who had long been viewed as part of the problem should now be considered as part of the solution as partners in supporting recovery".
