NAMI Keystone invites Beaver County residents to take advantage of the new NAMI Connection meeting held weekly near Sewickley. This 90-minute support group is free for adults (over 18), living with mental illness. Trained NAMI Co-facilitators, living in recovery themselves, follow a structured model that ensures you and others in the group have an opportunity to be heard and get what you need.
Help, hope and healing can be found by sharing experiences and struggles with others who have suffered similar events.
For questions, contact Lucy Holley by phone at 412.477.3078 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings are held in the church basement from 4:00 – 5:30 pm every Wednesday. Signs are posted.
