Changes and new offerings to Mid-Valley programs due to COVID19
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Virus crisis NAMI Mid-Valley has canceled our upcoming Family to Family Classes and Connection Peer Support and Recovery meetings until further notice as of 3-13-2020. We want to ensure the health and safety of all our volunteers and the individuals and families that we serve.
However, we are happy to announce that we will begin online Family Support Groups using the Zoom Platform starting April 7th.
Support groups will meet live and online on our regular First and Third Tuesday of the Month schedule, with a shorter meeting time from 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Please contact the facilitators at NAMIMV@sbcglobal.net if you are interested in participating. We will then email you a link to the site and instructions for using Zoom in conference mode. The email address we are using initially is only temporary and we will let you know when we have a permanent one. Take good care of yourselves!
We’ll continue to monitor the recommendations of Governor Brown and the State of Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority, and the CDC and will restart our programs again when it’s been deemed safe to do so.
