The NAMI National Convention is one of the largest annual gatherings of mental health advocates in the nation. Join NAMI in June to embrace the theme, Our Movement, Our Moment, and pick from hundreds of sessions focused on bringing change to our society, our systems
This year’s convention is focused on creating change and building a better tomorrow in three key areas:
- Personal Change – Empowering individuals and families to seek help and support, find community and engage in personal advocacy. Workshops in this track address programs, practices or research that helps individuals identify early symptoms, learn treatment options, and find support groups, education programs or social services.
- Societal Change – Raising awareness of mental illness both individually and throughout society. Workshops in this track address public awareness efforts, social media
andother community outreach programs that help shift societal perceptions and increase recognition of mental illness as a health condition like any other.
- Systems Change – Advocating, leading and investing in accelerating innovation in healthcare, education and justice systems. Workshops in this track address state and national public policy initiatives, education of health care professionals, and promising programs or interventions that are helping people with mental health conditions better access help or achieve better health or quality of life.
