Understanding Mental Health: a presentation by NAMI Westchester


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Everyone is affected by mental health conditions. Understanding them better helps us all, and NAMI, the national organization for mental health, works across our country to improve our knowledge and perception of mental health.

Millions of Americans are affected by mental health conditions every year, yet these conditions frequently go undiagnosed, as well as being misunderstood and often stigmatized. These medical conditions are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing.

Right now the world is changing faster than ever before and the challenges of social media, instability in society and global uncertainty interact with our mental health in new and complex ways.

Join Sharon McCarthy, Executive Officer of NAMI Westchester, to learn more about mental health conditions, and hear a first-hand story from a NAMI client currently living in recovery.

Whether you are a parent, care-giver or someone who just wants to know more, this presentation is for you.

Sponsored by St. Stephen’s Church with NAMI Westchester. All welcome. Free of charge, and refreshments provided. Ample parking. Please enter via up the stairs from the parking lot into the Parish Hall.
