NAMI Meeting in Newport

NAMI-Rhode Island has an affiliate called NAMI-Newport County, which is primarily for friends and family members whose loved ones are living with serious mental illness; such as, schizophrenia, manic depressive/bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. This group does not focus on one particular mental illness. We serve families in the Newport County area.

We meet once a month, on the second Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 at the Newport Public Library.

It is an opportunity to talk about our loved ones, difficulties that you or the loved one may be facing, challenges of day-to-day life, and meet family members who have similar concerns. We offer support rather than therapy and talk about any subjects members care to discuss.

Call or e-mail Eileen Spillane for more info at 846-8523 or spookys6@aol.com.
