Welcome to autumn. 🙂
The month kicks off with Mental Illness Awarenesss Week, yet another time dedicated to dragging reality out of the closet to get some fresh air. As usual, NAMI Door county will have a display at the Sturgeon Bay Library. The libraries will be presented with eight copies of a book by a local writer, Tara Meissner. Stress Fracture is the story of her ordeal and recovery.
An event worth noting will be held at Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center, 107 North First Ave, Sturgeon Bay. On October 7, beginning at 6pm with a Resource Fair and hors d’oeuvres, it will feature a presentation by Rob Valentine on Mental Health and Substance Abuse Disorders: Strength Through Understanding
On a lighter note, the annual JAK’s Place / CSP Halloween Party will take place from 1-3pm on October 31. Dress up for prizes! There will be plenty to eat.
Here is the first issue of our new unified newsletter. From now on, there will be no separate NAMI Door County or JAK’s Place newsletter.
And, of course, the calendar.
