Monthly Affiliate Meeting update


When: 3 December 2015, 6:00pm

Where: CHI Health Service Center, 7261 Mercy Rd., Omaha NE

In keeping with the tradition we've established over the last few years, NAMI Omaha will again take time out to host a celebration. Maybe 2015 was a great year for you...lets celebrate! Or maybe 2015 was a difficult one; that's okay too and If that's the case then lets celebrate our hope for a great 2016! Either way you look at, mental illness hurts us, it drains us, but it won't defeat us and we need to always remember to take time to have some fun and enjoy life.

"The Third Annual NAMI Omaha - Ugly Christmas Sweater Open House."

That's right, we want you to find the ugliest Christmas or Holiday sweater you can find, put it on, and come join us for holiday treats. While enjoying the relaxed setting, we hope you'll take the opportunity to talk to various board members and share your ideas on how we can continue to assist you and your families in the New Year. We also hope to take this opportunity to pass along a few of the ideas we're considering to make 2016 awesome!

We'll have treats and punch; play a few games; give away a few prizes, and just have some fun!

Friends, we're excited about the future at NAMI Omaha and we hope you'll continue to partner with us to pushback against the stigma of mental illness in our communities and help us continue to grow as a valuable resource you and others can count on.
