Mental Health 101
The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network – Greater Milwaukee Chapter is hosting “Mental Health 101:”
“May is Mental Health Month! Join us to learn about mental health, mental illness, and the stigma surrounding both. Learn how stigma plays a role in mental health conditions and how you can help support someone you know who may be struggling. Participants will also learn what no-cost services NAMI Southeast Wisconsin provides their community in Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Jefferson Counties.
