The meeting is open to families and friends of loved ones living with mental illness.

Sara Steinberg Levine, manager of special events and technology for NAMI Keystone, will speak about the annual NAMI Walk on Oct. 1 at Monroeville Community Park West. She will bring flyers and raffle tickets for an array of items and stress the importance of supporting outreach efforts.
