Need help and support dealing with your loved one who is living with a mental illness?
Too often, mental illness is an isolating experience, accompanied by profound anxiety.
When your family member or friend is diagnosed with a mental illness such as depression,
bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or any other mental illness, there is a dramatic change in the
relational dynamics between family members and close friends. Life as you knew it begins
to disintegrate before your very eyes and episodes of meaningless chaos burst into reality.
Talking with someone to share coping strategies and insights, as well as problems and
concerns can be an important link in the path to recovery. Our group hopes to provide a
place that offers respect, understanding encouragement and hope.
The NAMI Hearts & Minds program is an educational wellness initiative
promoting the idea of wellness in both mind and body. Generally,
wellness is an ongoing process of learning about, and making choices
toward, a more successful life.
