Family to Family Course



History of the Family-to-Family Program

The idea for a peer family education course was first developed by NAMI Vermont in 1990. In 1992, the Vermont program joined forces with NAMI Louisiana to expand their services nationally.  This joint project adopted the NAMI Louisiana trademark, Journey of Hope.  NAMI proudly sponsors the original Vermont program as an integral part of its grassroots educational mission. The program has been renamed the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program.  The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program was designed and written by Joyce Burland, Ph.D, a family member clinical psychologist who has directed the peer family project since it began in 1990. Dr. Burland now serves as director of the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program.
