This past week, NAMI NC held two training classes on how to form Community Inclusion (CI) programs in local areas in NC. Participants were impressed with the training provided. This program is important because studies have shown that many people living with mental illness need support to feel included in the community. Lack of inclusion contributes to feelings of isolation and hampers recovery. A CI program (CI) can focus on how individuals with mental illness can find natural supports and activities with others in their community.
NAMI would like to launch this valuable program in your community, but we need your help. We are looking for volunteers to be a part of the program. Free training is provided and mini grants are available to provide funding. Click here for more information.
