CHANGES TO MONTHLY EDUCATIONAL MEETINGS
The NAMI Rome Board of Directors wants to offer quality and helpful educational meetings to its members. We've been holding monthly educational meetings for many years. Some meetings have been well attended (center picture--Floyd County District Attorney race) and others are not. We've had quarterly "fun" nights in lieu of educational meetings. The 2016 Christmas party (see above picture) was an example of a "hit." We also hold a candlelight service at a local church during Mental Illness Awareness Week, which attracts more community members. In 2017 we will focus on having 3-4 major educational events which will take place in May--Mental Health Month, July--National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, and October--Mental Illness Awareness Week. Check our Calendar for events.
WE WILL HOLD SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS IN ROME ON THE 4TH MONDAYS (EXCEPT WHEN THERE IS A MAJOR EDUCATIONAL EVENT).
