The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has a rally/walk scheduled for noon Tuesday on the steps of the Indiana County Court House.
Mayor George Hood will issue a proclamation naming May as Mental Health Month. Included in the rally presentations will be talks by the county commissioners and several of the region’s outstanding mental health professionals. Valerie Vicari, who heads up the Western Region of the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Service; Dr. Ralph May from the Community Guidance Center; and Dr. Suzanne Vogel-Scibilia, president of NAMI Pa., will speak.
This will be followed by a short walk along Philadelphia Street for all that are able and willing to show NAMI’s support for improving the lives of our mentally ill neighbors and friends.
