The release said illness has led to staff shortages at the NAMI Havre office.

“We would like to say we are sorry that we are not up at the office a lot, but we are volunteers at the office and with the flu season,” the newsletter said. “No one wants to get anyone sick. Spring and Summer is coming and we will be up there more then we do in the winter time.
