Our Education & Advocacy (E&A) Meetings have changed to an online meeting format in the light of Covid-19 Stay Home measures for both San Diego and San Diego’s North Inland areas. Please read on for important information.

NAMI Friends,

As we continue to navigate our world in the midst of the COVID-19 Stay Home directives, we want to continue to provide you with resources for maintaining our own mental health during this time of isolation. NAMI San Diego has migrated our Education & Advocacy meeting as well as the bulk of our support group calendar to Online meetings using the Zoom platform through June 30, 2020.  

We are thrilled to let you know that NAMI San Diego, in partnership with Alliant International University’s California School of Professional Psychology, are presenting a-once-a-month Wellness Wednesday. This partnership is called The Mind Collective and normally the third Wednesday of every month we present a one-hour Zoom session at 1 pm. This interactive session combines personal mental health experience and professional tools to create more wellness in our lives. Speakers address mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellness every month. Please check out the calendar section [link to calendar section] for information on how to register for free for the next Wellness Wednesday.  Please note that Wellness Wednesday IS recorded in order to be available for future viewing. 

You may have heard in recent news articles about concerns regarding the security of the ZOOM platform for meetings. Please be assured that this is something that NAMI San Diego takes very seriously.  We NEVER record our meetings which would make us vulnerable to viewing on the cloud. As a Host we are able to mute and remove any individual in the group who fails to comply with our NAMI Support Guidelines. Among the precautions that we take are the following:

  1. Only the Host can control chat access
  2. Only the Host can screen share
  3. If necessary, the Host can exclusively control the mute function
  4. The Host has the ability to remove an individual from the ZOOM meeting 

If at any time you are uncomfortable during a ZOOM meeting you have the ability to turn off your camera, or leave the meeting. 

Please stay home and stay safe, friends.

Thank you for connecting with NAMI San Diego. Please remember: You are NOT Alone.
