Why You Should Attend
People who live with mental illness are often at higher risk for heart risk factors such as cigarette smoking, obesity, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and hypertension (high blood pressure)- all of which can be made worse by some antipsychotic medications. Much of that risk is preventable: knowledge is power.
Certainly, living with mental illness can be quite a challenge already. NAMI Hearts & Minds offers a wealth of information. You do not need to figure this all out at once - NAMI Hearts & Minds will show you how to take it one step at a time. You are worthy of a happy, healthy and long life. Knowing the risks will help you make informed choices that can make that happen. When you are ready to work on one of these areas, focus and get going.
