Pay It Forward!

Nami Pasco would like to invite the families of our┬áveterans who’ve suffered from psychological trauma during their deployment to join us: We have a newly forming support group, as well as special education class. In these settings you can meet with other military families dealing with trauma and related issues to gain insight and support.

what-is-ptsdIf you’ve experienced mental and/or physical trauma during your military service and received help enabling you to recover, your experience could be invaluable to those vets still suffering. Please consider being a facilitator for our new Veterans Support Group. To register or for more information contact Gil D’Amore at (352) 999-0615 or can also reach NAMI Pasco at (727) 992-9653.
