Mental Illness

Mental Illness is a condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning.  Mental illnesses often make it impossible for an individual to cope with ordinary demands of life.  Mental illnesses can affect persons of any age, race, religion, or income.  The illness is not the result of personal weakness or poor upbringing.  There are treatments for mental illnesses that can give a person diagnosed with a serious mental illness some relief from their symptoms.

NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for services and treatments for people who live with mental illnesses.  NAMI is the foundation for several State Organizations.

NAMI-NH has a Family Support Group in the Plymouth Area.  They meet the first and third Monday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Pease Public Library, downstairs.  This is open to anyone who is dealing with a close friend or family member who has mental illness.  For information, call Marcia at 254-5090, email: or Carol at 536-2699.
