BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, is looking to raise awareness about the struggles of female veterans.

NAMI Kern County started a new group this year that's designed to bring together women who served in the military.

According to a press release, the goal is "to address the complexities and challenges of trying to live in today's society through conversation, education, and mindfulness."

The group meets the first Saturday of every month.

If you're interested in learning more about NAMI and the support group for female veterans, they are holding a 'Meet & Mingle' event on January 18, 2020 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Pacific Health Education Cognitive Center, located at 5300 California Ave. Suite 110.
