CW hosted “In Our Own Voices,” presented by our local NAMI chapter (the National Alliance on Mental Illness). Ron and Joanne shared their personal stories and discussed the five stages every person goes through when dealing with a mental illness:
1. Introduction & Dark Days
4. Coping Skills
5. Success, hopes, dreams
NAMI is a unique organization that offers the kind of understanding and care that only those who have lived the experience of mental illness can provide. They offer multiple programs to provide support to those that have a mental illness as well as those with a loved one that has a mental illness.
