NAMI Effingham Regional Meeting and Family Support

Bring Your Own Brown Bag Supper

Bring your own brown bag supper along with a Support Group Meeting for those caregivers supporting someone with mental illness; husbands, wives, parents, and siblings welcome.  This is a meeting for US.  There will NOT be professionals in attendance, except for our group leaders with the goal of letting us learn from each other.  This is a chance to find out that your experiences are similar to others and not just happening to you.  You will find that there is a lot of commonality in caring for persons who have a mental illness.

Join us and meet others like you.  Learn that you are NOT alone in supporting your loved one with mental illness, there is help to be shared out there.
