February Dinner Meeting
February 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25.00
Mental health is a topic many of us don’t like to discuss, but it’s a topic that is affecting the world around us. Some of us don’t even know about the support and programs we can reach out to in our very own communities. We want to make a change with the help of guest speaker Abby Grasso, Executive Director at National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) serving Montgomery County, PA. Please join us for our February 25th Dinner Meeting at 6pm at The Broad Street Grind. RSVP to Diana Trotter at email@example.com or 267-354-1944
“Abby, a clinical social worker, believes in people first and has devoted her professional life to serving people living with mental illnesses. In October of 2016, Abby came to NAMI Montgomery County with energy and expertise to assume the leadership role as Executive Director of NAMI of PA Montgomery County Affiliate. In the almost 20 years preceding her appointment as Executive Director, Abby worked with individuals and families affected by mental illness as the Clinical Supervisor of a youth shelter, a mobile therapist, a social worker/ asssessor at an inpatient hospital, and the Director of Business Development for an inpatient hospital.
Abby feels with certainity that we are all affected, whether directly or indirectly, by mental illness and that need to properly educate and support our communities to strengthen programs, treatment, and resources. Abby’s passions include seeing that our communities are equipped to support those in need of mental health support, to help others identify the very best in themselves, to support each individual in their own recovery, and to end the crippling stigma that attaches to those living with mental illness and their families.
With her family and two pups, Abby lives in Montgomery County and believes that her life experiences, both personally and professionally, have led to her NAMI of PA Montgomery County to help others throught the mission of NAMI and strengthen our communities.”
