New Circle of Care Guidebook Assists Caregivers

NAMI partnered with the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) to create the Circle of Care guidebook

This new toolkit provides 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.
