March Monthly Program

Tuesday,  March 13, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.  Stepping Stones of Rockford, Inc
Speaker:  Nikia Ware, RN BS/BSN/MBA/MSN-ED
Topic:  “The Pet Affect”

Nikia will address the positive attributes a pet offers to the mentally ill, dealing with depression, anxiety, agitation, ptsd and overall trauma.

Adding to that piece she will talk about the homelessness of mentally ill patients as well as overall homelessness and those who remain homeless related to there being no place for them to go to seek refuge or shelter if they choose to keep their animals, which in some cases are their only life line to unconditional love, affection and understanding.

May Annual General Meeting and Monthly Program

Tuesday,  May 8, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.  Stepping Stones of Rockford, Inc
Speaker:   Lisa Clark,  Principal Harlem High School
Annual General Meeting:  At this meeting we will introduce our FY 18-19 board of directors.  Current NAMI members will be eligible to vote.
Topic:  Addressing the mental health challenges with LGBT

Lisa will address if without mental health we cannot be healthy. We all experience emotional ups and downs from time to time caused by events in our lives. Mental health conditions go beyond these emotional reactions to specific situations. They are medical conditions that cause changes in how we think and feel and in our mood.

Lisa  has been working for policy changes to provide an equitable environment for ALL in our community.
