The New Hampshire Family Network (NHFN) provides support, education and advocacy for families supporting youth and children affected by serious emotional disturbance (SED).  
Our goals are:

  • To strengthen the family’s ability to support the needs of their children and adolescents by making resources, training and support groups available
  • To ensure that our resources and assistance are available statewide through a variety of ways including online, over the phone and in person
  • To collaborate with other mental health agencies and community organizations to provide support and guidance to families
  • To provide means for families and youth to increase their capacity to advocate, take on leadership roles and influence local and state mental health policies to improve outcomes of youth and children with mental health challenges

NAMI New Hampshire’s Children and Youth Programs staff is dedicated to providing support and training to New Hampshire families and caregivers who provide care to youth and children with SED.  We offer the following trainings and resources:
