Free Webinar: Adapting Community Inclusion to Circumstances of 2020
Community Inclusion (CI) is exactly what it sounds like; creating a community that includes everyone. Unfortunately, stigma and other issues present barriers for peers to participate in their own community. Everyone has a right to be included, regardless if someone is living with a mental illness or not. Additionally, studies show that peers that participate in their communities are more likely to find recovery and have an improved quality of life.
CI is changing the way we look at recovery, and even more, it is changing the way we look at mental illness. Instead of telling peers how they should act to “fit” into a community, we are asking the communities to change their perspectives about mental illness and create more welcoming and embracing environments for everyone.
Join NAMI NC’s own Mikayla Leffin and a panel of NAMI affiliate CI leaders from across the state for a free webinar with i2i on Thursday, June 25th at 2pm. They will be discussing CI and the challenges that COVID-19 and other hurdles 2020 has presented, and how to adapt to these conditions.
