High School Students
The Bluebirds is a NAMI sponsored Wood River High School peer-support group for high school students; it meets every Thursday, at rotating times. Julie Carney, WRHS Social Worker oversees the group and works closely with the NAMI youth intern. Topics, by student request, are coping mechanisms, ways to overcome depression and anxiety, and helpful activities outside of school.
NAMI on Campus provides information and resources to support students living with mental health conditions and to empower them to take action on their campuses. This site also includes materials to help colleges in improving the academic and social experience of their students by addressing the mental health needs of all students.
