NAMI McKeesport affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness will meet at 6 p.m. June 3 in the pavilion adjacent to the McKeesport Heritage Center in Renziehausen Park, a spokeswoman said.
The meeting is open to families and friends of loved ones living with mental illness.
NAMI is a support, education and advocacy organization. Current statistics report that two in five adults live with some type of mental illness. That number translates to more than sixty million Americans. Also, about 20% of children have a diagnosable mental illness during any given year. When a family member is struggling, the whole family (as well as close friends, neighbors, co-workers and the community) are also affected.
For more information about the McKeesport meeting call (412) 527-6600. For the NAMI Helpline call (412) 366-3788 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
