UPCOMING COMMUNITY INFORMATION EVENTS
presented free of charge, registration not required.

Our NAMI Connections Peer Support Group is canceled this Saturday, September 14th. 


Mental Illness Awareness Week.
The first week in October is designated as Mental Illness Awareness Week. Each year, the week provides an opportunity to fight stigma, provide support, educate ourselves and the public and to advocate for the best care and services. 

Join us for "Every Brilliant Thing" a hilarious and compassionate play by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe about depression, resilience, and the lengths we will go to for those we love. It is performed by Lori Schneider and told in collaboration with the audience. Even though it's a one-woman show, it's quite possible that you'll be asked to become a cast member. 

Refreshments will be served. Presented in partnership with Staten Island University Hospital, Northwell Health.
