May 2020 is Mental Health Month, and NAMI Hillsborough wants you to know that “You are Not Alone”.
Even during a climate of physical distancing, we can build connection. This is the time to be creative and to connect in as many digital ways as necessary for us to feel supported.
It is important now more than ever that we demonstrate that we truly are a #CompassionateCounty. Know that your NAMI Hillsborough community is always here for you. Connect with the movement all month long using the hashtags #NotAlone #YANA #MHM.
Thank you for connecting with us during the month of April. We were able to support many people in the Tampa Bay area, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and beyond!
We will continue our partnership with NAMI Pasco in May, and to meet the demand for additional Zoom support groups, we have added Mondays to our schedule! Be sure to save the new schedule, and we’ll see you soon!
NAMI Basics is Now On Demand!
NAMI Basics is a 6-session education program for parents, caregivers and other family members who provide care for youth (under age 22) who are experiencing mental health symptoms.
The self-paced program is FREE and available 24/7. NAMI Basics offers the flexibility of participating in the course on your schedule. Both formats provide identical information, strategies and the opportunity to connect with other parents and caregivers.
“I completed all six sessions over the Christmas holiday,” states NAMI Hillsborough Vice President, Natasha A. Pierre. “I was very pleased with the content and delivery.”
