Our next regular General Meeting will be Monday, October 19, 2015, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Faith Hall at the First Lutheran Church in Torrance. NAMI South Bay will have a panel of three guests for Monday evening’s meeting: Pam Pasillas of the Emergency Outreach Bureau (EOB) of Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH), Sergeant Carol Wilk of the Torrance Mental Evaluation Team (Torrance MET), and a member of the Gardena/Hawthorne Mental Evaluation Team (GH-MET).
The panel will discuss the field-based mental health services teams combining police and mental health professionals in our area. Important information will be presented about what these teams do and how to work with them.
The general meeting will be preceded by the Caring and Sharing Support Group, a support group for family members to discuss anything pertaining to the care, management or treatment of their loved ones, as well as the family members’ and caretakers’ own well being.
