Find Help, Find Hope!



To our local Tri-county NAMI and Mental Health Community:  As you are aware, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker mandated a statewide Stay-at-Home order on Saturday, March 21st to run through April 7th as an attempt to flatten the curve on the spread of the Coronavirus known as COVID-19.   Below are some very helpful links to help all of us know more about this virus and NAMI’s position on how we are getting information and help out there.
