*Special Guest - The NAN Project 

We seek to improve the conversation around mental health concerns and ultimately reduce suicidal thoughts among young people by making awareness of the same through our events.

The NAN Project emphasizes the messages of HOPE and HELP by:

Acknowledging that mental illness is a very serious problem among young people;
Accepting mental health challenges as illnesses of the brain that can be treated;
Providing access to treatment for all families and their children.

To learn more about the NAN Project, come to the next General Membership meeting.
