Join NAMI-CO as we hear from Lines for Life and Youth Villages. Lines for Life is a regional nonprofit dedicated to preventing substance abuse and suicide, offering help and hope to individuals and communities and promoting mental health for all. Their work addresses a spectrum of needs that include intervention, prevention, and advocacy. They educate and train Central Oregon high school students to assist on phone lines and to advocate to prevent issues of substance abuse, mental illness, and thoughts of suicide from reaching crisis levels. When a crisis arises or support is needed, Lines for Life is available 24/7/365 to intervene with personalized help. Youth Villages is a national nonprofit providing effective and cost-efficient treatment options to help children with emotional and behavioral issues, their families, and youth aging out of state custody live successfully.
The meeting is preceded by our Bend Family Support Group, 5:15-6:45 PM.
Please join us in support of good mental health in our community. Our meetings are free and open to all.
