Announcement From NAMI NYC Staten Island: New Support Groups, Classes Free To Public, Invitation To Join


Dear Our NAMI NYC Staten Island Family,
Thank you for taking the time to read my message.

I’m Lyn Ferrante, the Executive Director of NAMI NYC Staten Island. Many of you know me, I look forward to meeting those that don’t. I am grateful to Linda Wilson for everything she has taught me since I joined NAMI in 1998. Although she retired last year after over three decades as Executive Director, Linda continues to share her vast knowledge and insights. I plan on continuing Linda’s good work as we expand our programming and presentations, to better address the needs of our diverse community.

Did you know we have opened up new support groups and classes?

  • We currently have 5 support groups that meet every week – 4 NAMI Family Support Groups and a NAMI Connections Support Group
