Members of NAMI-Yolo, the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will gather for a potluck meeting from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, at the Episcopal Church of St. Martin Social Hall, 640 Hawthorn Lane in Davis.
Dr. Jonathan Porteus, CEO of Sacramento’s WellSpace Health (formerly known as “The Effort”), is the guest speaker at the free event. He will talk about the connection between mental disorders and drug abuse. Also up for discussion is the integration of behavioral health into the medical setting.
The potluck dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. and the program follows at 7:30 p.m. Bring a dish to share if you can but you are welcome if you can’t. Those with last names beginning with I-P are asked to bring a main dish; Q-Z, a salad; and A-H, a dessert.
NAMI-Yolo provides education, advocacy and support for people living with mental illness. For more information, call 530-756-8181 or visit www.namiyolo.org.
