Join us as we celebrate an extraordinary year
NAMI-Tallahassee’s Annual Holiday Party provides an opportunity for fellowship and to share the affiliate's accomplishments. The affiliate provides the meat and drinks. Please bring a side dish to share.
We also use this time each year to recognize specific individuals and elect board members and officers for the coming year. We will be collecting items for Apalachee Center's FACT (Florida Assertive Community Treatment) team clients: non-perishable food, personal paper products or basic cleaning supplies.
NAMI Basics is a 6-week education program for parents and caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental illnesses.
