Mental health group to hear about support systems


COLLEGE PLACE — Walla Walla’s National Alliance on Mental Illness will features Kathleen Shannon at a meeting Thursday.

Shannon, a mental health professional, will discuss building social supports and the importance of that support system for people living with mental illness. Increasingly, however, Internet and social media make it harder for people to find and build true friendships and supports, she says.

The program opens with a meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m., at SonBridge Community Center, 1200 S.E. 12th St.

NAMI Walla Walla is beginning a search for additional board members for 2013. For more information call Bobi Goodson at 301-8318.
