President’s Message – July 2017
NAMI PA, Main Line will be offering two sessions of Family-to-Family (F2F) this fall. Family-to-Family is a course structured to help family members understand and support a relative diagnosed with a serious mental illness while maintaining their own well-being.
- Family-to-Family at Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood will begin in mid-September (date to be posted), and will meet once a week for 12 consecutive weeks from 7-9.30 p.m. on Tuesdays. For questions or to register, contact Judy Green at 610-668-7917 or F2FMainLine@aol.com.
- Family-to-Family in Devon/Wayne will begin in mid-October (date to be posted), and will meet once a week for 12 weeks, from 7-9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. If you have questions or to register for this course, please contact Sarah at 484-919-0069 or BrynMawrF2F@gmail.com.
We are pleased to announce two revised and updated documents which we hope you will find useful:
- “Steps to Better Physical Health for People with Mental Illness (and for all of us) – Advice and Resources“, which now includes a link for Philadelphia Leisure Activities and You with some great suggestions for becoming active and for low-cost or free activities in the Philadelphia area
- “Choosing the Right Mental Health Professional“, which includes a section on “Helping Your Psychiatrist Help You”.
