NAMI Family Support Center at Western Psychiatric

In response to last week's tragic incident at Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic (WPIC), NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania has set up a NAMI Family Support Center in the fourth floor cafeteria of WPIC.

Implemented on Saturday, the NAMI Family Support Center is a place for family members to visit if they need to talk or express their concerns about the crisis situation last week. Whatever type of reaction family members may be experiencing, they will find NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania to be a supportive listener. 

The center will be staffed by a NAMI employee this week (today through Friday) during visiting hours from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Light snacks are available.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to friends, families and colleagues at WPIC. We are here to support them.
