At the NAMI National Convention in June 2017 this report – in the works by the National Council on Disability – was announced. You will likely have read press reports about it during the late summer. Use the link above to find the full report of recommendations for Congress, federal agencies, and colleges to improve college mental health services and post-educational outcomes for students with mental health disabilities.
Will you be motivated to reach out to your alma mater, your child’s college/university or a college or university local to you about how they will address these recommendations?

The holidays can be a stressful time just in living an ordinary family life.
For families with a loved one with a mental health condition, this time of year can add still more to an already stressful situation.
Mara Briere of Grow A Strong Family, Inc. will provide guidance for family members on how to make the holidays a more enjoyable time for all involved.
