A Forum on Mental Illness by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Whatcom. Mental illness can be a confusing and easily misunderstood term and topic, yet it exists in most families and all communities. NAMI Whatcom is the Whatcom county affiliate of the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Join NAMI Whatcom on Sunday, March 5th at 9:15 am for a presentation and discussion on mental illness and what NAMI's role in the community is. There will be information on programming, and how you can get involved and support us. There will be a 20-minute question and answer portion at the end of the presentation; all questions are welcome.
