NAMI Portage-Wood Counties has numerous events planned to support Mental Health Month. Watch for green ribbons throughout the counties showing our support. Check out our window display and resource table at the Portage County Public Library. Join us on Saturday, May 15th from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Idea Center in Stevens Point, for a Make/Take rock painting event. (Please use the doors off the parking lot on Water Street). Masks are required and social distancing will be in place. For questions contact Carrie at (715) 323-4437.
