Mental Illness Strikes a Jewish Family, What Do I Do Now? The Experience of a Parent and a Person in Recovery.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When mental illness strikes, it creates chaos in both the family and the person with the mental illness. Someone who has experienced this trauma will discuss the road to recovery and describe the support and family education that organizations such as NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) can provide.
