St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea to host peer-to-peer mental illness educational program

St. Joe's Chelsea
Address: 775 S Main St, Chelsea, MI 48118, USA

St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea and The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Washtenaw County will host a free peer-to-peer educational program for families, friends and caregivers of individuals diagnosed with a mental illness such as major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. The class will be led by trained peer mentors who also live with mental illness. This is not a support group, but a supportive, safe and confidential program.

This course teaches the basics about serious brain disorders and treatments, helps connect people to others who share a similar experience and teaches important skills and coping techniques for their difficult journey.

Class meets weekly and starts:

Date: Thursday, March 15, 2018 for 12 weeks.

Time: 6 – 8 p.m.

Location: St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea, 775 S. Main Street, Chelsea, MI

There is no cost for this class but registration is required. Please call Kathy Walz, Behavioral Health Navigator at 734-680-5312 to register.
