Hello, my name is _______________. I am a volunteer/intern with NAMI Metropolitan
Baltimore. How are you?

We are contacting schools in the metropolitan Baltimore area to enlist your help
recruiting members for the upcoming free education program for parents and other
kinship caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illness. All course
materials are furnished at no cost. The 6 week course is taught by trained teachers who
are also parents/caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness
in childhood. The curriculum discusses current information about the major childhood
mental illnesses and provides the fundamentals a caregiver needs to care for themselves,
their family, and their child who is living with a mental illness.
We are scheduling a class for the fall.

Could you help us by asking anyone you believe would benefit from taking the class to
contact the office at 410-435-2600? If yes: May I have your contact information so that I
can email/mail you a flier and information about our other services? (Try to get email

I would like to thank you in advance for your time and any help you can provide us. Do
you know of any other ways that we can recruit members for NAMI Basics?
