1 in 5 Americans suffer from a mental health condition. Educating our community to erase any stigma associated with mental illness and to know the signs of mental illness is key to reducing hospitalization, incarceration and homelessness within our county.
NAMI will pay for you to be trained in existing NAMI courses so that you can present evidence based information to our community organizations, churches and businesses. You will never be alone, there are always two presenters at each session and you will be paired with an experienced volunteer.
