NAMI of Southwest Louisiana will be holding its 2016 Annual Membership Drive on Thursday, October 6th at L'Auberge Casino Resort inside the L'Auberge Sycamore Room. The sole purpose of NAMI is helping those dealing with mental illness, whether directly or supporting those whose family members deal with mental Illness.

The annual Membership Drive is about raising funds in order to better support those in need. There are plenty of expenses needed to help those cope with mental illness, and the drive, along with the annual walk, is about raising funds to help offset some of those expenses, which can get rather high.

Also, make sure you are in attendance for the dinner next Thursday, October 6th, beginning at 6:30pm. If you would like to call or RSVP, you can do so by calling 337-433-0219 for details.
