Mental Health Awareness Month 2022:
Here is a small success story in the town of Wayne, Passaic County: The town library agreed to put up a mental health display in recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month. The display is a four sided island structure in the entry foyer of the library and consists of graphics, literature, and relevant books. To the right of the display is a table set up with NAMI info such as our Essex/Passaic affiliate brochure, NAMI signature programs, and meeting information. And to add to the festivities, students at the high school alma mater in Wayne, DePaul, are conducting a mental health awareness walk during the month with the fundraising proceeds being donated to NAMI. We have very little control over what goes on in Trenton or Washington, but we can all make a difference locally, especially in our own towns.
