National Alliance on Mental Illness
Norwalk Reflector - 9/6/2019
Sep. 6--The Huron County chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has two upcoming events.
The monthly support group will meet at 6 p.m. Monday at the Norwalk facility for the Enrichment Centers for Huron County (previously the Senior Enrichment Center) on Shady Lane. The session is open to everyone and intended for anyone impacted by mental illness.
Also, the NAMI Family-to-Family classes begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Enrichment Centers in Norwalk. The series of 10 sessions is free for family members, partners and significant others of individuals living with a serious mental illness. It is recommended for family members, spouses or those close to impacted people.
Call to register at 419-677-4128. For more information, call Diane at 419-677-4128 or Kris at 440-935-1987.
The 10-session education program is structured to help caregivers understand and support individuals with a serious mental illness while maintaining their own well-being. The course is taught by a team of trained NAMI family member volunteers who know what it is like to have a loved one struggling with one of these brain disorders. Some of the serious mental illnesses include: Major depression, bipolar depression (manic depression) and the following disorders: Schizophrenia, schizoaffective, borderline personality, panic and obsessive compulsive, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and co-occurring brain and addictive.
"Over 300,000 people in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Italy have completed this course. We think you will be pleased by how much assistance the program offers. We invited you to call for more information," secretary Diane Tuttle said.
