At RADIAS Health we believe serious and persistent mental illness is a brain disease. It is neither a choice nor a character weakness. Each consumer is an individual with specific strengths, vulnerabilities, and clients can become their “own best expert on their illness.”
Mental Health Day at the Capitol, March 16
Mental health advocates, persons living with a mental illness, families, friends and mental health providers will gather for Mental Health Day at the Capitol on March 16. A Legislative Issues briefing session will be held at the St. Paul Armory from 10:00-11:30, followed by visits to Legislators from 11:30-1:30, and a Rally in the Capitol Rotunda from 1:30-2:30. Free buses will be provided from a number of locations in Greater Minnesota. The event is sponsored by the Mental Health Legislative Network, a coalition of more than 35 organizations working to improve the quality and availability of mental health services in Minnesota. NAMI Minnesota co-chairs the Network.
