Family/Friends Mental Illness Support Group
Representative: Vivian Flanagan (NAMI Fox Valley)
Third Thursday of the month, 6:30–8:00 PM, Upper Lounge
Serious and persistent mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder and major depression, are devastating both for those who have them and for their families and friends. If you know someone who has a mental health condition and you are looking for emotional and practical support, then this faith-based group, offered by NAMI Fox Valley, is designed for you. (Please note that this group is intended for people in an active caregiving relationship with a loved one who has a mental illness, not for those struggling with mental illnesses themselves.) New participants from the congregation and the wider community are welcome at any session.
