Changes Due To Corona Virus Pandemic
. Because we take the health and well-being of our NAMI Massachusetts community very seriously, we advise that in-person classes and support groups change to a conference call format and cease to meet in-person. We are busy working with all Peer and Family support group and class leaders to move the groups to a conference call or video-conference format, or to temporarily suspend them. If you attend a NAMI support group or education program, please check with your program leaders and facilitators for the latest information about your groups and classes.
We will continue to make adjustments in our Community Education & Training programs, including In Our Own Voice, Ending the Silence, Allies for Students with Mental Health, and Sharing Your Story with Law Enforcement.
We encourage you all to use the most reliable websites for information – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MA DPH). The MA DPH website has the best local information so please pay particular attention to their advisories.
