Rockdale/Newton NAMI Members Participate In Parent Academy at Rockdale Career Academy
Rockdale/Newton NAMI representatives had the opportunity to speak to parents about mental illness at Parent Academy on Sat., March 18 at the Rockdale Career Academy. The event, which is held twice a year, gives parents the opportunity to attend short classes on a variety of topics. In between classes they can pick up information on many services in the community at the vendor fair. Rockdale/Newton members have participated for several years, making sure parents in their community have access to information on mental health and NAMI.
NAMI National’s poster, “People with Mental Illness Enrich our Lives” made a good conversation starter. Barb Nieman and Caryn Thompson spoke with about 100 people about NAMI and mental illness.
