Peer group in Kasson helps those with mental health issues

By Karen M. Jorgensen

Dodge County residents with mental health issues who may be looking for help are invited to join a local peer counseling group that meets every Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Kasson.

This is the first such group in Dodge County, said Karen Tracy who coordinates the group.

The Kasson group is one of two connection support groups in the area affiliated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Southern Minnesota. The second group meets every Wednesday in Rochester.

These are free, peer-lead support groups for adults living with mental health issues.

The group is for people who have any type of mental health issues, Tracy said. It offers a non-judgmental place for people to discuss their issues, she said.

There is no charge to the individual, Tracy said.

NAMI Southeast Minnesota is a local affiliate of NAMI, the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of people affected by mental illness.
