NAMI Walk & Family to Family Course

August 31, 2017

The Portage County Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will hold their annual "Walk for Recovery" on Saturday, Sept 23 at the United Church of Christ in Kent, located at 1400 E Main Street. Doors open at 9am and the walk will begin at 10:45am.


Before the walk steps off, participants and community members are welcome to attend an awareness presentation on the drug epidemic in Portage County at 9:30am. The Portage Health District will train attendees on the signs of an overdose and distribute naloxone kits to county residents. Local musician David Stump will perform his new song regarding addiction before the walk.


Donations will be used to support Portage County NAMI family support groups and classes as well as efforts to fight the stigma of mental illness.


Family to Family Class - a 12-week education program for family members who have a loved one with a mental illness. The class is taught by trained local people who have a loved one with a mental illness. The class is being held on Tuesday evenings, starting Sept 19, 6:30-9:00pm at the Church in Aurora located at 146 Chillicothe Rd, Aurora.
