Support Group

1st Thursday of every month 7:00pm, at the Journey Church , family care room.  95707 Amelia Concourse, Yulee, FL

Every Friday, 11:00 am , at Council on Aging, 1367  S.18th Street, Fernandina Beach, FL  (Directly across from Nassau Baptist Medical Center)  This group is facilitated by two psychiatric nurses.

Our mission is to educate the general public so they will understand that mental illnesses are neurological brain disorders that are no-fault, biologically based, treatable, and may eventually be preventable. They will be exposed to and understand possible solutions and alternative approaches to services/treatment for mentally ill people. With effective treatment, the Surgeon General states that with early recognition and proper medical treatment, 80% of those with mental disorders can live healthy, productive lives."  Mental illness will receive its fair share of government resources and entitlement based on its incidence and affect on society. We will end the stigma the mentally ill suffer.
