Join Shelly to learn how families can be an advocate for their loved one who experiences mental illness. Facing the stigma & misconceptions.

Shelly Lathrop, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) NH

Families deal daily with the stigma and misconceptions that surround their loved one’s illness. Stigma makes families feel shame and guilt. It may prevent ill family members from having the opportunity to work, live independently and create well balanced lives for themselves. This program enables families to use their experiences to change the attitudes and open the minds of all members of their community, and to spread the message that everyone has the ability to help promote recovery, resiliency and wellness for those diagnosed with a mental illness. Life Interrupted was developed to provide families a way to educate their communities about mental illness recovery. Presentations are made by trained family members who have a loved one affected by mental illness. These families speak about their own recovery; how they learned about, coped with, and promoted their own health, the health of their family, and that of their loved one with mental illness.

Monday, November 9th 6:00-7:00 p.m.
