Fortunately, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Bucks County is offering a wide array of services online.

In addition to reaching out to the community through social media, NAMI Bucks County is offering online support services, such as those scheduled for today, Saturday, April 4, including:

  •  3 p.m.: Mental wellness group
  • 7 p.m.: Youth support group
  • 9 p.m.: Movie night with NAMI: “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” via Zoom

All of these online support groups and activities are free, confidential, and open to all individuals.

Learn more about these services by visiting the NAMI Bucks County website and visiting their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

Most importantly, please remember you are not alone!
