Overview

This webinar will provide participants an opportunity to learn more about the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the national's largest grassroots mental health organization. NAMI is an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations, and volunteers who work in communities across the United States to provide education and support to people affected by mental illness--the individual with the condition and the people who care about them. The services offered by NAMI are intended to complement the therapeutic services individuals receive from their treatment team. This webinar will provide an overview of the programs and services available through NAMI that can provide support to individuals and families as they cope with having mental illness in their life, and as they navigate the healthcare system to find the right services. It's important for clinicians to know about all available resources so appropriate recommendations can be made to the individuals on their caseloads.
