Families and Mental Health on Alice 97.3

Liz Saint John asked some great questions about families dealing with mental illness issues in our interview for 97.3 Alice radio’s Sunday Magazine to air Sept. 20 from 6-7 am.  I got a chance to plug my favorite mental health help organization, NAMI, which stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness and has branches in counties all over the United States ( . NAMI has many fantastic programs, but the most intriguing one to me is Family to Family, which puts families struggling with mental illness issues in touch with other people like themselves to share information, suggestions, and comraderie. Hope you enjoy the interview!
