On Saturday, September 20th over 350 people joined together at Frame Park for NAMIWalks in Waukesha 2014 to celebrate mental illness recovery, honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness, and to help raise funds, combat stigma, and promote awareness. This was our most successful NAMIWalk event ever and for the first time ever we surpassed our $50,000 goal. We have raised $51,548 so far and we are still accepting donations for NAMIWalks until November 20th so there is still time to donate! Thank you to everyone who supported NAMIWalks in Waukesha this year and helped make it such a success!

NAMI Waukesha Survivors Helping Survivors Support Group 

Have you recently lost a loved one to suicide? Your feelings of grief, sadness, shock, isolation, anger and guilt may seem overwhelming. You may wonder if you will ever recover. These are normal responses. There is help from others who, like you, have experienced this tragedy. They want to help you recover and, most of all, they want you to know that you are not alone.

Survivors Helping Survivors is open to all family members and friends of a loved one who has completed suicide.  There is no need to register, no fee and you are welcome to attend as often as you would like. 

 Survivors Helping Survivors will be held on the 4th Thursday of every month from 6:30-8:30 pm at the NAMI Waukesha Offices located at 217 Wisconsin Ave. Suite 300, Waukesha, WI 53186. For more information please contact NAMI Waukesha at 262-524-8886.


NAMI Waukesha Care Connection Support Group

 

NAMI Waukesha is excited to announce a new support group, The Care Connection. The group will support individuals wrestling with Bi-Polar, Depression, ADHD, Schizophrenia or any other diagnoses. The focus of the group is to support everyone affected by mental illness. This includes the person diagnosed (Consumer) and, Family and Friends.

At each meeting everyone benefits from hearing about the experiences, challenges and successes of both groups during a combined session.  The meeting then splits into three separate groups: Consumers; Young Adult Consumers; Family and Friends.  This format provides everyone with a confidential, safe environment in which to discuss the difficult issues they face and develop ways to cope with them.  

The Care Connection will meet every Tuesday evening from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM in the Vercelli Building, on the grounds of St. William Catholic Church located at 440 N. Moreland Blvd. in Waukesha. For additional information, please contact NAMI Waukesha at 262-524-8886 or call Peter Castator (414-915-8540), Michael Wycklendt (262-751-9231) or Mary Weisman (262-506-8751).
