NAMI Sussex is pleased to offer a special program on coping with the holidays during our general membership meeting on November 19th, presented by Intensive Family Support Services ("IFSS"). The holidays can be a stressful time for families dealing with mental illness and this year the current health crisis of COVID-19 brings an added source of stress and isolation to the mix. During the meeting, Carrie Parmelee, Annette Hoffman and Lois Kiensicki will discuss this topic and facilitate an open discussion among participants about these issues. Families will be provided an opportunity to discuss their experiences, both positive and negative and the presentation will offer some helpful resources for coping and self-care during the holiday season. Information about the IFSS program will also be presented.
