Our next NAMI Schenectady lunch meeting is at noon on Monday, March 12, 2012 at Center Stage Deli, 2678 Hamburg St., Rotterdam. Our speaker will be Jody Kovach, manager of the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team in Schenectady, under Mohawk Opportunities auspices. The team, with a staff of seven and 48 clients, conducts visits to patients in their homes and meets with them at other locations. The aim is to monitor their health and mental health care and try to keep them from having to be rehospitalized. Our NAMI group has reserved seating at the back of the restaurant. We arrive just before noon. Parking is available in front and along the side of the building. Look for the Center Stage Deli sign right after a U-Haul Truck Rental place. The deli is about two miles south of the intersection of Hamburg St. with Altamont Ave. at its northern end. We will also discuss the Health home initiative in Schenectady, the Forensic Task Force, and progress on our affiliation agreement with NAMI national.
