Announcements

Based on the recent state of emergency, and requested social distancing measures, NAMI Virginia is canceling all in-person programs and meetings for the next three weeks, effective today 3.18.20. Many of our Affiliates will be taking similar measures and you should be hearing from them, if that is the case. In three weeks, we will re-evaluate to determine if additional cancelations are deemed necessary. We are currently investigating viable options to move our programming online during this time. Should this be made available, we will share with our community at our earliest opportunity. For now, please utilize our national, state and local Helplines for support and guidance.

NAMI Virginia now has a new resource page with up-to-date information and resources for COVID-19. You can visit it here. Please continue to get your daily updates on COVID-19 from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) websites as-well-as your local news stations.

 

Thank you everyone for your advocacy efforts on February 5 but it doesn’t stop there! Stay informed on what’s going on with our bill tracker and our action alerts!
