President’s Message – November
We are very grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of Main Line NAMI on the Move by volunteering, donating, walking, and raising awareness in our Main Line community and beyond. Please see our Newsletter for more information, including Nancy Dever’s very helpful talk “From One Parent to Another – Sharing My Experience and Lessons Learned”.
During this holiday season, some of us need extra support. Adults living with mental illness can find support at our new peer-led NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group which meets on Tuesday evenings in the Bryn Mawr area. (This group will meet through December 18 and then resume in January.) For more information and to sign up, click here. Family members can find support at one or more of these support groups:

- Parent Peer Support Group for parents with a middle or high school child who is challenged with mental health symptoms; meets almost every Wednesday,6:45-8:15 p.m. in Wayne. (Due to holidays, this group will not meet on October 31, November 21 or December 26.)
