For Minority Mental Health Month, NAMI Southern Nevada is excited to share their new “Special Populations Meetings”. These meetings will provide an opportunity to engage multicultural communities on how to expand mental health education and support. These discussions will help to identify how cultural views on mental health keep community members from sharing challenges, seeking help, and providing support. The individual population meetings include Latnix, African American, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Native American, LGBTQ, and Faith (Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist) Communities. The group and individual flyers are below with registration info for the online access. They appreciate any interest or promotion you can provide.
NAMI Southern Nevada provides free education, support, and advocacy for individuals affected by mental health challenges, such as individuals, loved ones, community members, and professionals. Please feel free to reach out to me to discuss ways that we can serve your organization.
