Eh?: Illness isn’t just broken bones

Area residents who have a family member living with a mental illness have an opportunity to learn more about mental health issues and how to provide support. The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Minnesota is holding a 12-week course in Duluth this fall that aims to give families a better understanding of mental illness by discussing communication techniques, stress reducers and potential resources that can mitigate problems that stem from mental health problems.

The course begins

Sept. 7 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Duluth and will run for 12 consecutive Sundays. All of the instructors have had firsthand experience dealing with mental illness in their families.

Contact the Minnesota alliance at (888) 626-4425 for more information or to register.
