TOMORROW on Thursdays with NAMI at 7pm:

11/19 - A Discussion of Self Injury and How One Person Found Recovery

Emotions can be overwhelming. To deal with distress, some folks take comfort in a habit that others find baffling - non-suicidal self-injury. Why do people hurt themselves? The urge may start with overwhelming anger, frustration, or pain. If someone doesn’t know how to deal with emotions - or had to hide them as a child - self-harm feels like a release. Afterward the body’s endorphins or pain-killing hormones can take over, lifting them out of depression or numbness. Join us for a candid conversation with survivor Bridget Davenport and clinician Vena Wilson, LCSW. Registration is required for this free event: http://ow.ly/LGE650CighR

TONIGHT on Thursdays with NAMI:
Meet Mike Estrada, maker of the lauded film ‘Benevolent Neglect’ ~ 7 pm!

Mike Estrada is a teacher whose mother lived with schizoaffective disorder. As he tried to help her get care in California he began to document the experience: ‘My mom, and others like her, deserve to live with more respect and dignity than they were given and shown.’ After her death in 2018 he took a year off to tell his story with video. ‘Benevolent Neglect’ has been acclaimed by best selling author Pete Earley, who called it an important film that should be promoted by mental health advocates everywhere.

NAMI strongly recommends completing a PAD as a tool of self-advocacy and effective crisis planning for those affected by mental illness. A PAD is a psychiatric advance directive that outlines one’s preferences for a point when they can't make mental health decisions or communicate their wishes themselves---a legal document that states YOUR wishes, for YOUR treatment. More information on PADs and free workshop info: https://naminc.org/?p=8436

~Internship/Helpline Responder Volunteer Opportunity~

Are you interested in making a meaningful difference in people’s lives?

The mission of NAMI North Carolina is to provide support, education, advocacy, and public awareness so that all affected by mental illness can build better lives. We are now receiving 150-200 inquiries per month on our Helpline. Volunteer help is needed on the Helpline in order to meet the needs of our community. Although NAMI NC does not provide direct services, callers that reach out can receive information, warm support, and referrals. Our Helpline provides a vital service to those affected by mental illness in North Carolina. NAMI NC is now recruiting interns and others to serve as volunteer Helpline Responders to help provide this valuable service to our community. Helpline volunteers will gain experience in giving support to those in need, as well as become familiar with mental health resources throughout North Carolina. This position will be remote (can volunteer from anywhere in NC). Training and support will be provided. More information can be found here: https://naminc.org/helpline-volunteer/

TONIGHT on Thursdays with NAMI:
Religion and mental health: Where do they intersect on the map of recovery?

Over 85% of Americans believe in a God, and two-thirds identify with a specific religion. Others claim to be spiritual even if they do not follow an organized religion. So is religion an asset or a liability for those who live with mental health challenges? It serves as a source of comfort and recovery for many, but it is also the basis of many stigmas and obstacles to people getting help.

In this session of Thursdays with NAMI, Executive Director Garry Crites, himself an ordained minister, will be talking with leaders from different religious traditions on the impact that faith and religion have on mental health, both good and bad.

General information

We are part of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) which has over 210,000 members in 1,200 affiliates across the country. NAMI NC is a non profit organization, governed by a volunteer board of directors. The NAMI movement focuses specifically upon those mental illnesses that are brain disorders. These are serious illnesses that can affect a person’s ability to think, feel and relate to other people and the environment. For adults, serious mental illnesses include schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disorder (manic depression), obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and other brain disorders. For children, the list of serious emotional disturbances includes the above illnesses, plus attention deficit disorder, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder. Membership in the nearly forty affiliates in North Carolina consists of family members of people who live with mental illness, individuals who live with mental illness, friends, and professionals. Affiliates typically have monthly support meetings/or educational and business meetings. When mental illness strikes, it is usually surrounded by confusion and isolation. Support groups can provide an opportunity to talk with other people who have “been there” and who understand what you are facing. General meetings have speakers on issues important to members. NAMI NC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the membership. NAMI NC is a 501 (c)(3) organization and contributions are tax deductible. Operating expenses are supported through individual donations, corporate or other philanthropic grants, and state grants.

I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

New Leaf provides mental health services to all ages, including individuals, couples, and family counseling.

It's been almost three and a half months since all of our lives changed completely with the pandemic. With economic uncertainty, job losses, and quarantining, now more than ever is the time to talk about emotional health and wellness.
