We will be meeting next Wednesday, March 4 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the basement of Santa Maria parish. We can’t wait to see you!

Everyone has mental health, but talking about it can be uncomfortable. That’s why NAMI has developed Say it Out Loud! Please join us next Saturday from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at the Arlington Park District as we watch a short video about mental health, eat pizza and discuss how to end the silence around mental health conditions.
