B.A.M. (Books, Articles, Movies) Talk!

Where friends new and old come together for an enjoyable night of energetic conversation.

This month, we’ll share where we are with reading Wil Carpenter’s books and we should be able to swap, too!

Since May is Mental Health Awareness month, we will also watch some movies or TV shows, articles and books on the topic and discuss at our May meeting. The NAMI sites: https://www.nami.org/ and https://namimontcopa.org/ have a wealth of information, including podcasts, videos and other resources on Mental Health topics.

Here are links to lists of NAMI suggested movies/TV shows:
