Dr. Strawberry Gallagher, both a NAMI consumer and a NAMI volunteer, will talk about how important “Gratitude and Resilience” is for both caregivers and their loved ones who have a mental health diagnosis. Strawberry has been a supporter and partner of NAMI for many years and she is an outstanding example of someone who didn’t let her illness define her. Come and hear her remarkable story of how NAMI helped Dr. Gallagher achieve so many goals that others said were impossible. You don’t want to miss it. This is a timely presentation as we move into the holiday season. All are welcome – Refreshments will be served.
