The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Wood County wants to see you for their first Education Series event of 2019.

On Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the WW Knight Nature Preserve, Perrysburg, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the Education Series will celebrate “Random Acts of Kindness” week and coincide with the question, “how are you kind to yourself?”

Need some ideas on how to treat yourself right? Special guest speakers from the Karuna House in Perrysburg will be chatting about wellness, their mission, and will lead the group in a guided activity to help practice kindness and how it relates towards your mental wellbeing.

NAMI stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness and is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community for hope for all of those in need.

More importantly, they are your local contact for information on mental illness. They provide education, support and advocacy for people living with a mental illness, the family and friends that support them, and the Wood County community.
