MONTHLY EDUCATIONAL DINNER MEETING WITH GUEST SPEAKER!
SAVE the DATE
This month’s speaker: NAMI Northern Nevada has invited Georgia Dalto, a graduate student working on her Ph.D. to speak about her project exploring mental illness and employment. Georgia has developed a survey to gather input from family members and individuals living with mental illness about their experiences with employment or seeking employment. Georgia will explain the project and have surveys available for anyone who wishes to complete a survey.
After Georgia speaks, audience members will have the opportunity to experience the “Hearing Voices” Lab. During this portion of the presentation, individuals will wear headphones and then perform a word search. The exercise will last 5 minutes. This is an opportunity to understand what individuals who have auditory hallucinations experience; participation is voluntary.
NAMI Northern Nevada’s focus is to provide information to families and people living with mental illnesses in areas of advocacy, mental illness education, support and services and wellness skills.
Everyone is welcome. We invite you to bring a side dish if you are able and we look forward to seeing you.
Dinner begins at 6pm, the speakers or presentation start at 6:25 and we are usually done by 7:30pm
Thursday, November 29th at The Bridge Church at 1330 Foster Drive in Reno
