NAMI Franklin County: A Family's Journey with Mental Illness
Video Trigger Warning: Talk of Suicide
NAMI Walk, June 25th in conjunction with NAMI Franklin County
Youth Mental Health Awareness Presentations
We recently began our Ending the Silence program, a free presentation for middle and high school students. These 50-minute presentations include an educational component and a personal story from a young adult living with mental illness. 

The purpose of this program is to "end the silence" around mental health conditions. Topics include stigma, suicide prevention, positive coping strategies, and more. 

We had a wonderful response to this presentation at Delaware Hayes High School. To schedule a presentation for your classroom, youth group, or club, email us today!

Save the Date: Fall 2016 Family-to-Family Education Program
NAMI Family to Family Education Program starts again in the Fall on Wednesday, August 24th 6:00-8:30 PM at our Delaware office. This free educational program is a 12-week course for family and caregivers of individuals living with serious mental illness.

This program gives important education family members and caregivers need to help loved ones and themselves. Advance registration is required. Visit the above F2F link for an easy contact form. 

Volunteer with NAMI Delaware & Morrow
NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers are essential to our mission. We couldn't offer education and support to the community without them. 

It's easy to sign up to volunteer with our new Volunteer Opportunities website form. Just let us know your volunteer interests and we'll get in touch to discuss how you can help. There's a place for you at NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties. 

Thank you to those who attended our open house
Our May 5th open house and ribbon cutting sponsored by the Delaware Chamber of Commerce was a big success. Thank you to the Chamber and all who joined to learn what NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties has to offer.

We encourage businesses to share our resources with employees. Mental illness doesn't discriminate and can lead to lower productivity. Read Mental Health by the Numbers to learn more.
