New support group for family and friends of those with mental illness | Events
Mental illness touches the lives of many in our community, where one in four persons is diagnosed with a mental disorder each year. Because of stigma and misunderstanding, these individuals and their families often suffer in silence and struggle alone.
St. Philip’s Mental Illness Ministry is happy to announce the beginning of a second support group for all family members and friends of persons living with a mental illness. This group, which meets on the first Wednesday of each month, is in addition to the support group that meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Groups are sponsored by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Southern Arizona affiliate. Experienced group leaders guide discussions about challenges facing those whose loved one has a mental disorder diagnosis.
All are invited for fellowship and support. The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Desert Sage Room, La Parroquia, at St. Philip's. For more information and to register, contact Sharon Nielsen at 299-0682 or email@example.com.
St. Philip’s Mental Illness Ministry is committed to developing a caring faith community through education about mental illness and available resources, hospitality and a warm welcome to everyone affected by mental illness, and support for individuals and their families.
St. Philip’s is located at 4440 N. Campbell Avenue at River Road. The office phone number is 299-6421. Ample parking is available in the north parking lot or on the east side under our solar parking structure. Desert Sage is in La Parroquia, the small building at the south of the church campus.
