A program designed to encourage, teach, and promote a healthy lifestyle for the mind and body.

NAMI Hearts & Minds program is an online, interactive, educational initiative promoting the idea of wellness in both mind and body. Hearts & Minds is also taught in a classroom setting at NAMI Wood County. Wellness is an ongoing process of learning how to make choices that support a more successful, healthy life. 

What You Should Expect

  • Educational program, free of charge.
  • Education on healthy goal setting, healthy eating, and exercise.
  • Taught by NAMI staff and peers
  • Incorporates presentations, discussion, exercises, and take home material

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.
