What we're about
We are NAMI people who like to get together for bowling, bonfires and fun.
Members are people with a mental health diagnosis and/or the family members. Ideally you should be involved with us in some way, through our classes, support groups or volunteer efforts but this is not mandatory. It's nice to hang out with people who applaud your accomplishments and understand your challenges. Through it all, we all need to go out and have a little fun!
The intention of the meetup is to make it easy to get together. Different organizers will schedule events like board games, bowling or bon fires. We will also reach out to our group for help with small administration tasks like putting labels on our brochures (while eating pizza! Got to add the fun part!). But mostly it will be used to organize fun get togethers. - One of our members is a marine biologist and once a year she organizes whale watching trips!
We hope you can join us!
