The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Marion and Crawford Counties will hold its annual meeting and dinner on Monday, May 14, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Bucyrus Public Library, 200 E. Mansfield Street, Bucyrus. The event is open to the public, and dinner will be provided free of charge, but reservations are required.

Guests will learn about the organization’s accomplishments over the past year, goals and projects planned for the coming year, and ways they can get involved to help end the stigma associated with mental illness.

Board member and Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training Coordinator Mark Light, also of Bucyrus, will share an update on this program designed to help law enforcement identify and better respond to mental health crisis situations.
