NAMI Fox Valley has partnered with three organizations to bring you relevant information on current “hot topics” in the mental health world.
All presentations will be held via Zoom from 11am-12pm on the respective dates. Each presentation must be registered for separately. More detailed information on the presentations and the links to register can be found by clicking the presentation titles below.
While we hope that you can join us live, each presentation will also be recorded and sent to registrants at a later date to accommodate schedules that don’t allow for live attendance.
