Veterans & Active Duty
Nearly 1 in 4 active duty members showed signs of a mental health condition, according to a 2014 study in JAMA Psychiatry. On this page we focus on questions that military personnel often ask, concerning treatment resources, disclosure and staying healthy during the transition to civilian life. If you are having thoughts of suicide, the Veterans Crisis Line is available 24/7 by dialing 1-800-273-8255 and pressing 1.
All Classes Are Free.
NAMI Home Front
NAMI Homefront Mental Health Resources For Military Service Members, Veterans And Their Families!
NAMI Homefront is a free, 6-session educational program for families, caregivers, and friends of military service members and veterans with mental health conditions.
Based on the nationally recognized NAMI Family-to-Family program, NAMI Homefront is designed to address the unique needs of family, caregivers and friends of those who have served or are currently serving our country. The program is taught by trained family members of service members/veterans with mental health conditions.
We understand attending an in-person class can be difficult for busy individuals and families. NAMI is excited to announce the launch of our free online suite of resources for caregivers, family members, and military service members and veterans designed to increase understanding, communication, wellness and advocacy skills.

"This training has been really helpful for me to process much of my own emotions. I am at a point now that being able to stop and look back at exactly how far we've come and being reminded of the painful past but positive changes was very empowering. Sometimes when we get stuck in the routine of moving on we lose sight of how far we've come."

"I realized I saw signs and symptoms of PTSD but did not know how to handle my loved one - I know better how to handle situations."

"You realize that he will never be the same having been through war. I learned how to treat him more as an adult than as a hurt child."- Mother of a Veteran after graduating from a NAMI Family-to-Family class held at a VA clinic
