About Latino MultiFamily Group
Latino MultiFamily Group (MFG) Program is based on the well-validated MultiFamily Group program, developed by Dr. William McFarlane at Maine Medical Center. In controlled research MFG has shown powerful effects for adults with serious mental illnesses, including substantial reductions in re-hospitalization rates and other positive outcomes. It also has been used successfully in adaptations with adolescents and with Latino families, including a recently-completed seven-year study for the National Institute of Mental Health.
This newest CoP will give 20 NNED Members training on how to begin and sustain a Latino MFG program in a way that meets the unique needs of the Spanish-speaking Latino families and clients in their communities. The application process will open on May 5th and will end on May 25th. To learn more visit the NNED's CoP page.
