Join us for our Summer Party next weekend!
NAMI PA, Main Line News and Offerings
We hope you will join us for our annual summer party on Sunday, August 27, 4-6 p.m. at a Merion location. This will be a good opportunity to socialize with others who share similar experiences and to meet Board members of our affiliate. The food will be “potluck” – salads, cold cut, rolls, desserts and drinks. If you are unable to bring any food that’s okay, but a reservation is still required. Please sign up for the party by Monday, August 21, so we can make sure to have enough food. Let us know if you will be able to attend and what you will bring by signing up at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0B49A8AE29A2FA7-annual. If you have additional questions, please contact Kristine at Kristine@NAMIpaMainLine.org or 267-251-6240. We will provide the address upon registration.

Feature of the Week: Mental Health Books for Children and Teens
NAMI PA, Main Line has compiled an annotated list of books for children and teens who have mental health issues. Our list also contains lists of books for children and teens who have siblings or parents with mental health issues and a list of books for parents of children with mental health issues. We hope this will be a helpful resource for families where children or teens are coping with mental health issues.
