NAMI night scheduled for Tuesday.

Mental illness subject of NAMI Night

ALBANY -- Have you ever wondered what happens in the human brain when a person is depressed, manic, hyper, irrational or obsessive?

Answers to those and other questions about mental illness will be explored on NAMI Night Tuesday when the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness presents "Mental Illnesses Are Biological Illnesses: An Overview of Brain Biology in Mental Illness."

The Albany NAMI affiliate holds NAMI Nights at 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month at Phoebe Northwest on Dawson Road. The meetings are open to the public, and a Sharing and Caring support group meets immediately afterward.
