Special Message for Our Members
The COVID-19 crisis is something we are experiencing together as a community, and we are working hard to make sure we can continue to provide our members and community with support during this difficult and uncertain time. The NAMI Westside LA team understands that while this crisis is unsettling for everyone, it is even more so for those of us impacted by mental health conditions. That’s why it’s more important than ever that NAMI Westside LA continue to fulfill our mission of providing our community with mental health support and services. And I am thrilled, grateful, and proud to report we’re rising to meet the challenge. We are proud to be adapting to current circumstances and offering support services and events online! More below.
