(Chelsea Update would like to thank Bobby Maldonado for the information in this story.)
Beginning March 14, St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea will host a 12-week family-to-family educational program to help parents, friends, and caregivers understand and support individuals with serious mental illness.
The family-to-family program is one of several signature programs developed by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and is an evidenced-based program; it has quantitative research to support its effectiveness.
The program begins March 14 and runs from 6-8:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, 775 S. Main St.
Registration is required but there is no cost to participate in this program. Light refreshments will be served.
For more information or to register, please call Kathy Walz, behavioral health navigator at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, at 734-680-5312.
