SPECIAL NOTICE - ALL NAMI MEETINGS

Dear NAMI friends, NAMI Columbus is concerned for both our members’ health and for the health in the communities in which we live, especially with the current coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, we have made some decisions to try to keep our members healthy, as well as to be responsible citizens. Using an abundance of caution, we are cancelling all of our in-person meetings for NAMI Columbus until further notice. Our NAMI guidelines suggest that we cancel meetings when our local school system is closed for health-related reasons. The Muscogee County Schools announced today that they will be closed until April 5th, so we are currently using that date, but we will notify everyone if that date changes. We understand that this is a potentially stressful time, so we are considering some possible alternate plans for our meetings. We will notify you of any options we establish. If you have any particular concern which needs to be addressed, you can always call our NAMI Columbus phone at (706) 320-3755. Please leave a clear message including your name and phone number, and we will return your call. In the meantime, please remember that self-care is always important. If you are anxious or confused about the recent changes, you can find help at these resources provided by NAMI national… NAMI National Updates NAMI Information and Resources Also you can call the national NAMI HelpLine (800) 950-6264 Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., EST Take care of yourself. Remember that your NAMI friends are still within reach. So reach out to each other by phone call, email, text, Facebook, or whatever you normally use. Let’s all stay connected somehow, even if it’s not in person. Remember our NAMI motto: “You Are Not Alone” Your friends at NAMI Columbus
