Main Line NAMI helps you to find a support group
Main Line NAMI Workshop, “Learning to Deal with Guilt, Grief and Anger“, will be on Sunday, April 15, from 2-4 p.m. at Ardmore Presbyterian Church (5 West Montgomery Avenue in Ardmore, PA). Workshop topics will include recognizing family grief when a loved one becomes mentally ill; learning to accept and move through guilt, grief and anger; and learning to accept your loved one with all the changes that mental illness may bring. This workshop will include presentations by facilitators, Bruce Fay and Sarah Freudberg, discussion, and a group exercise to help participants deal with their guilt, grief and/or anger. Bruce Fay and Sarah Freudberg are facilitators of NAMI’s Family-to-Family Education Program and each has a loved one with mental illness. We will have a brief membership meeting before the workshop begins.
