NAMI Dakota County
Mental illness, an often isolating illness, affects one in five people. It affects persons of any age, race religion or socioeconomic status. It affects the entire family. Mental illnesses are biological brain disorders and can disrupt a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Mental illnesses are treatable medical conditions. Thanks to research and medical advances in medications and treatment, recovery is possible. Many people feel isolated by mental illness due to the stigma and misinformation surrounding it. If your life has been touched by mental illness, you are not alone.
We have a commitment to, improving the quality of life for people who live with mental illnesses, erasing the stigma around mental illnesses, referring families and friends to existing resources, and influencing public policy.
WE WANT YOU... to be informed. Come to one of our meetings. There is no cost or obligation--just the opportunity for you or your loved one to help and get help!
NAMI Dakota Education Meetings are on the 2nd Monday of the month, 7:00 p.m. at Mary Mother of the Church, 3333 Cliff Road, Burnsville, MN
