National Alliance on Mental Illness forming Appanoose chapter

There will be a planning meeting to discuss the formation of a National Alliance on Mental Illness chapter here in Appanoose County on Tuesday, March 11 at 4 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church at 410 N. Main St. in Centerville.

NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization. NAMI is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families living with mental illness. NAMI strives to provide a range of services through support, education, advocacy and research. Having a chapter in Appanoose County would mean that our citizens could find the support and understanding they need and Appanoose County could lead the way in southern Iowa in encouraging all Iowans to give persons with mental illness the treatment, respect and economic opportunities they deserve.

Nancy Hale, executive director of NAMI Iowa, will explain the benefits of having a local chapter. Future NAMI education programs will be discussed. Everyone is welcome to attend this planning meeting. For further information, contact Dewey McConville at deweymcconville@gmail.com.
