Hi Members!

2/24/2015 NAMI on Campus Updates

Upcoming Member Meetings:
Member meetings are held monthly at 2pm on Wednesdays in CLA 3216. Below are the upcoming meeting dates:

  • 3/25
  • 4/15
  • 5/6

Make sure to come to the meetings so that you feel even more connected to our student group, and if you have class and have to leave early or come late - that's completely fine (come anyway)!

  • Living Classrooms is an education and enrichment program for at-risk children in Baltimore. They have an after-school and supplemental education program that teaches them about health, wellness, the environment, and other topics.
  • Lesson Plan: We have been planning a lesson for the children on mental health issues (contact gbinns1@students.towson.edu  with interest for that project)
  • Parent Workshop: We have been asked to host a psycho-/educational workshop on mental illness for the parents of the children at Living Classrooms. The program will be discussing how to talk about and address mental health and concerns with children. It should dovetail nicely with the lesson plan we will be presenting to the students (so that the conversation can get started between both the parents and children instead of just targeting the children with the information and not informing the parents).
    • If you are interested in this new project of planning or executing the workshop, please email us at towsonunami@gmail.com!

  1. Our planner was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding. The event planner was calm, organized, and kept everything running smoothly throughout the entire day. I felt calmer knowing she was there!
