This year’s NAMI Michigan Annual State Conference will focus on the future of integrated healthcare in Michigan, the effects of mental illness on Law Enforcement and civilians, Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT), early diagnose and effective treatment of trauma, mental illness, suicide prevention, NAMI Provider training for Health Care Professionals and more. The conference is designed to improve understanding of mental health diagnoses and increase awareness and access to new evidenced-based treatments. Our attendees represent a cross section of stakeholders in Michigan’s mental healthcare system, including persons receiving services, caregivers, advocates, law enforcement, judicial and health care professionals. Conference attendees will participate in a series of engaging workshops and presentations designed to increase awareness and encourage participation in their communities. Workshops will detail best practices, new research and recovery models. If you have any interest in mental illness as an individual, caregiver, family member, professional, school professional, mental health professional, peer support, place of worship, or any other, you should attend this conference. The conference includes CEU credits for Social Workers and SCECH credits for teaching professionals.
NAMI Provider is a staff development program for health care professionals who work directly with people experiencing mental illness. NAMI Provider introduces mental health professionals to the unique perspectives of people with mental health conditions and their families. You’ll develop enhanced empathy for their daily challenges and recognize the importance of including them in all aspects of the treatment process. Leaders for both the program and the seminar must have successfully completed the teacher training for the full program (1.5 days).
