Questions regarding NAMI SWI meetings and inclement weather policies: When Southwestern IL College (SWIC) classes are cancelled because of bad weather NAMI SWI support meetings are also cancelled. SWIC cancellation notices will be broadcast on all major TV and radio stations in the St. Louis area.

There is an urgent need in these stressful times for NAMI to offer more support meetings throughout the 6 counties we are attempting to serve. It takes volunteers to do this. Please call the NAMI office 618-798-9788 for information about how you can become a support group facilitator.
