For Your Awareness: As of February 19, NAMI (the national organization) transitioned over to a new software program for processing memberships and listing our NAMI Orange programs and, unfortunately, things did not go as smoothly as hoped.
We ask for your patience while they diligently work to get everything operational again.
For a list of our upcoming programs/courses view the sidebar or click on Meetings/Support Groups on this website.
