NCPD Council on Mental Illness will be holding awareness workshops at three locations in July: Hyattsville, MD (July 11); Chicago, IL (July 21); Portland, OR (July 24). Please click here to download a brochure with more details. Also, see the listings in our Coming Events Calendar at http://www.ncpd.org/events. The major cost of the workshops are provided by a grant from a generous benefactor to the NCPD Council on Mental Illness, so only a nominal fee of $10 will be asked to help cover the expense for a light continental breakfast, lunch and materials.

What Will You Learn?
The Mental Illness Workshops will introduce Catholic diocesan personnel, pastoral leaders, and parishioners to the issue of severe and persistent mental illness and will provide them with tools and resources to further the welcome, support, and involvement of individuals with mental illness and their families in the life of the faith community. Participants will be given specific practical, actionable ideas, ready and easy to use in their parishes.
