Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, 11/20 from 2:00p.m – 3:00p.m
in Lithicum Hall, room LI 0006.
The theme of our member meeting will be depression, stress and anxiety. The
discussion will be led by Jonathan Schettino from the Counseling
Center, who is the Coordinator of Anxiety and Depression Services. We
hope to have interactive and/or discussion component to this meeting, so that
we can be more engaged on the topics of depression, stress, and anxiety.
We would like to provide light refreshments for the meeting. If you are
interested in supplying refreshments (a case of beverages, a large bag of
chips, a tray of cookies, etc.), you will receive an additional membership point!
NAMI on Campus at TU would like to have member tee-shirts.
We hope to make the tee-shirts for the beginning of next semester. However, we
need YOUR help in designing them. If any of you are savvy with creating designs
and logos and would like to submit an idea, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for general
guidelines regarding the tee-shirts.
Open Executive Board Positions
Fundraising Coordinator: The fundraising coordinator position is still available for graduate students looking to get more involved this academic year! The position's main tasks are planning fundraising programs and overseeing bank account transactions. If you are interested or want more information on the position, please email email@example.com !
The NAMI executive board would like to present a couple opportunities to you!
The first, is to be a committee member for an upcoming panel on Mental Health. We would like to have a committee of members that would be meeting with our Program Coordinator, Gabrielle Handwerk, to plan the event. The two panels held last year were on experiences with mental health challenges as well as experts in access to services under the Affordable care act. You will have a unique opportunity to work together to plan this even, if you are interested!
The other, which is something that you might have heard about, is our upcoming collaboration with Living Classrooms.
Living classrooms is a Foundation that provides enrichment and after school programs to students who live in Baltimore. The program has its students engaged in hands-on education and learning experiences, such as working with plants and animals on their Harbor East Campus.
Initially, we will be going to their campus two times: 1) To observe the students who we will be working with and 2) to work with children and host an educational session on bullying and working with children with physical and mental health conditions and disabilities. This is educative in nature, so if you are interested, please be prepared to help co-facilitate a discussion on such topics!
Our first meeting of the Semester will be on Thursday, September 18th at 2:00p.m!
We will be meeting in Lithicum Hall Room LI 0006 (Right next to the Center for the Liberal Arts and Lecture Hall Buildings).
Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to get involved in the effort to:
1. Decrease the stigma placed on topics related to mental health
2. Promote an equitable distribution of resource for all individuals
3. Advocate for individuals with mental health concerns!
The chapter meeting is open to all students (and guests) who would like to attend. We will have a meet-and-greet, discussion of our Organization's current objectives, and a talk about the direction we want to take this year!
