NAMI NC would like to extend our appreciation to Brian Cardoza of New Bern, Jackie Pilgrim from Durham, and Shawn Caldwell of Huntersville for their frank discussion on their experience with mental illness. To quote one session attendee: “This is such a wonderful panel, they have brought so much this evening, I commend each and everyone of you, know how much you are appreciated, your bravery and courage and knowledge is exceptional. Your honesty!!” Thank you Brian, Jackie, and Shawn!

If you missed it, the recording of the session is available in its entirety on NAMI’s YouTube channel here.

As mentioned above, this Thursday’s session will focus on the importance and ‘how-to’ of creating a Psychiatric Advance Directive (PAD). Thursdays with NAMI starts at 7pm and is free and open to all, but registration is required. Please register for this week’s session HERE .
