The first full week of October — this year, the 4th to the 10th — is Mental Illness Awareness Week, and we’re ready to celebrate it all month! NAMI Door County and JAK’s Place are participating in a number of events. The YMCA Health Fair, on Tuesday, October 20, is one. It runs from 8:30am to 12:30pm, so there’s no conflict with JAK’s Place’ schedule. Call 920.743.9999 to get a free ride.
We hope that all our members and friends will find some way to add their voice to the “We are stigma free” chorus. On various social media, you can use the hashtag #IAmStigmaFree to join others who are taking the Stigma Free Pledge.
Don’t forget that our Quilt Raffle is happening later this year, at the annual Nami DC Dinner Meeting in November. Tickets will be on sale until then.
