NAMI-Chicago & Erasing The Distance

Erasing the Distance is deepening our partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness – Greater Chicago this fall and we couldn’t be more excited.


On Sunday, September 13, 2009, at 9:00 a.m., we will be a sponsor of NAMI’s’ Annual 5k Walk beginning in Grant Park. We will have a booth full of ETD information and goodies.

If you'd like to join us, come by Grant Park at 9 a.m. the morning of the walk. We'd love to see you!

Want to learn more about such illnesses as depression, bipolar, or OCD... you can help a family member, friend or loved one? On Tuesday nights from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m., on August 25 – November 10, 2009, Brighid O’Shaughnessy will co-facilitate NAMI’s 12-week FREE Family Education Class.

For more information or to sign up, contact Abra, NAMI’s Education Coordinator at 312.563.0445.
