Our Havertown Support Group Meets this Coming Week!

The Havertown NAMI Family Support Group is a free, confidential and safe group of families helping other families who live with mental health challenges. In this support group, families join a caring group of individuals helping one another by utilizing their collective lived experiences and learned wisdom. Family members can achieve a renewed sense of hope for their loved one living with mental health challenges.  The group will meet on  the Tuesday, August 15 from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church of Llanerch (211 Lansdowne Rd. in Havertown, PA 19083).  For more information, please contact Nora at nora@huntjohnson.org.

We hope you will join us for our annual summer party on Sunday, August 27, 4-6 p.m. at a Merion location. This will be a good opportunity to socialize with others who share similar experiences and to meet Board members of our affiliate. The food will be “potluck” – salads, cold cut, rolls, desserts and drinks. If you are unable to bring any food that’s okay, but a reservation is still required. Please let us know if you will be able to attend and what you will bring by signing up at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0B49A8AE29A2FA7-annual. If you have additional questions, please contact Kristine at Kristine@NAMIpaMainLine.org or 267-251-6240. We will provide the address upon registration.
