Nov 27 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This fall, NAMI Wood County is offering three free classes for families touched by mental illness at the Wood County office, 541 W. Wooster St., Bowling Green.

Family-to-Family is a 12-session class taught by trained relatives of individuals living with mental illness. The course provides participants with information on mental illnesses, their symptoms and diagnosis, and treatment options, along with strategies for caring for loved ones with these conditions. The next class will run from 5:30-8 p.m. Sept. 11 through Nov. 27.

Peer-to-Peer is for adults living with mental illness. A trained facilitator, who is also in recovery from mental illness, covers topics including medications, treatment, options, coping skills and advocacy. This program runs 5:30-7 p.m. Sept. 11 through Nov. 13.

NAMI Basics will begin Sept. 12. Designed for parents and caregivers of a child or adolescent living with a mental illness, the program provides participants with up-to-date information on mental illnesses and their impact on the brain, current research on evidence-based therapies, medication and side effects, and suggestions on navigating the mental health care, school and juvenile justice systems. The six-week course meets from 6:15-8:15 p.m. Tuesdays.

Call NAMI Wood County at 419-352-0626 or email info@namiwoodcounty.org for more information or to register.

Apt. 3 @ Mazza Museum
Dec 28 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

The University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum is introducing “Apt. 3,” a young professionals group that the museum will host at after-work receptions and networking events.

The first gathering is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 28, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the museum, 201 College St.

Individuals who bring a donation for the museum’s art room will be admitted free. Ink stamps, Crayola watercolor sets and washable markers, Scotch tape and glue sticks are some of the preferred donations.

Subsequent events and receptions will be held about every three months, and will coincide with gallery rotations, according to Kerry Teeple, museum deputy director. Other scheduled receptions will be Dec. 28, March 13 and June 14.

Apt. 3 members will be exposed to cultural, literary and artistic experiences, and can enjoy additional social interaction while also supporting the Mazza Museum.

Drinks from local brewers and vintners, snacks and a short keynote presentation will be included with each event.

Museum organizers hope Apt. 3 will serve as an additional, complementary option for members of Findlay Young Professionals and others between the ages of 18 and 40 who are seeking after-work cultural enrichment.

The Apt. 3 name is derived from one of the four original pieces of art that the museum collected. Created by Ezra Jack Keats, the “Apt. 3” illustration was purchased in 1982.

The Mazza Museum bills itself as “the most diverse collection of original artwork by children’s book illustrators in the world.” The museum’s goal is to promote literacy and enrich lives through the art of picture books.
