- Bridges of Hope: Bridges of Hope is a faith-based presentation to help give a better understanding of those who live with a mental health condition and the impact on the family.
- Lunch/Breakfast and Learn: NAMI Westchester will come to your place of business, community center or place of worship during breakfast or lunch. The presentation will focus on mental health and suicide prevention and will feature a personal story by an individual living in recovery.
