The goal of "Up To Me: Talking about Mental Health" is for you to think about the upsides and downsides of talking about your experiences with mental health challenges in the daily settings of your life (family, friendships, workplaces, school, etc.).

Together, you learn ways to talk about yourself that have worked for others. This program empowers you to make the best decision for yourself, and if you decide to talk to others, to be ready for any unexpected responses. We meet together for six hours for a one-day or two-day workshop.

DATE & TIME: Saturday, November 2 | 8:30 a.m-3:30 p.m.
LOCATION: NAMI Fox Valley | 211 E. Franklin St. | Appleton
