Upcoming Classes and Seminars
Read more... Schizophrenia Education
In the Fall of every year there are a new batch of classes related to schizophrenia and mental illness - offered around the country (US, Canada, etc.). We encourage you to find one that is close to you and sign up to learn more.
Top among the classes offered are the NAMI Family to Family courses - that every family member should try to take if they can. Contact your local NAMI office (see our list of support groups) - and in Canada I understand that they have also started offering the Family to Family class via the Schizophrenia Society - so definitely check them out.
Other regional areas also have university continuing education classes that are frequently excellent. For example - Stanford University (near San Francisco, California) offers the following class on October 15, 2005 (Cost, if I remember correctly, is about $75 for the one-day seminar):
When Someone You Love is Mentally Ill (PSY 193)
To Sign up go to: When Someone You Love is Mentally Ill (PSY 193) and click on the "Add to Cart" section of the page on the right hand side.
Stanford, like many universities, also has a "Grand Rounds" series of medical talks each year that is open to the public (though it is targeted at medical school students and faculty). In the coming months, some interesting topics include:
"PSYCHIATRY GRAND ROUNDS: Social Neuroscience: A New Basic Science for Psychiatry"
October 13: "CHILD PSYCHIATRY GRAND ROUNDS - TBA"
As we come across other university courses available for families of the mentally ill to attend, we'll let you know.
