KAYSVILLE — A free 12-week Family-to-Family class will begin Sept. 10 to help families and friends of individuals with brain disorders or mental illness.

The course will be held at the Davis Applied Technology College campus, room 1099 at 550 E. 300 South in Kaysville,

Classes are structured to help family members understand and support that mentally ill loved one while maintaining their own well being, a news release from the National Alliance on Mental Illness/Davis County said.

A team of trained volunteer family members who know what it’s like to have a loved one with mental illness in the family will lead the classes. The classes will help parents, spouses, siblings, friends and significant others deal with the issues of living with a loved one who has been diagnosed with mental illness.

Class sizes are limited and registration is required. Register by contacting Jerry King at 801-451-5325 or  email jerryking5325@msn.com.

In addition, a free 10-week recovery course called Bridges brings together people who share the experience and knowledge of mental illness to empower each other with the tools to build bridges of recovery.

It is a peer-to-peer class taught by trained individuals who have personal experience with mental illness.

It will be held at the DATC campus in room 1115 Tuesday nights, starting Sept. 10.
