March Meeting – NAMI Greater Los Angeles County

7:30 PM, Monday, March 21, 2022
Presenter: Traute Winters
Executive Director
NAMi Greater Los Angeles County

The National Alliance on Mental Illness Greater Los Angeles County (NAMI GLAC) has officially formed a merger between six chapters in Los Angeles County, and is part of a greater effort to promote advocacy and grants to implement free mental health programs in the county. The organization, now known as NAMI Greater Los Angeles County (NAMI GLAC), will include six chapters and represent approximately 70 percent of the county, including the San Fernando Valley, Glendale, San Gabriel Valley, South Bay, Pomona Valley, and Long Beach areas.

NAMI South Bay will continue to operate very similarly to its current operations but will have the benefit of more effective advocacy and economies of scale.

“By unifying the affiliated chapters under one umbrella, we can ensure that our service areas are receiving the support they need, and focus our attention on building and strengthening our programs in the county,” recently stated by Traute Winters, Executive Director of NAMI Greater Los Angeles County. Ms. Winters was appointed Executive Director last summer and was previously a regional director for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in Los Angeles area. Please come to the meeting and welcome Ms. Winters and have a discussion about reasons for the merger and plans for the future.

The meeting will be virtual. Please contact Nami South Bay President, Paul Stansbury (pstans5@aol.com) for remote access information.

August Meeting – Sneak Peek at a New Docu-Series

Please come for a very special treat. for the last few years we have had a movie night at our August general meeting. This August we will have one our former board members, author Jamie Weil, tell us about her young adult book First Break and give us a sneak peek of the “A Crazy Thought” docuseries.

Jamie Weil and her family, like many families, have had a very challenging journey and have found important support at NAMI. Jamie transmuted her difficulties into a passion to help other families successfully navigate the labyrinth of mental illness when it hits the youngest and most vulnerable family members. Momma Bear first, Jamie is a youth mental health advocate, writer, filmmaker, and former elementary school teacher in Manhattan Beach.

Her current Young Adult novel, First Break, is a first person story of moving from 17 to 18 in the middle of a psychotic break.

Her current docuseries, “A Crazy Thought“, is in production, with the raw pilot coming to NAMI South Bay Monday night for a special sneak peek. This docuseries is the answer to a calling to produce a six-part series that can used both in the schools to educate students and teachers, as well as to reach widely the 1 out of 4 families struggling silently with mental illness in their homes.

We will show the pilot, have books on hand for purchase ($16 cash) and signing, and have a Q&A after on what we are calling Mission ACT. Jamie and Mike, both former board members at NAMI South Bay board, are excited to bring back a piece of advocacy to their NAMI South Bay Family.
