It’s so easy to feel stuck: stuck in our bad habits, stuck in our isolation, and stuck in our hopelessness. With the challenges of the past two years, this sense of despair can become more intense as we cycle through repetitive negative thoughts. In the face of this very real and very understandable challenge, how do we take care of our mental health? What does it mean to persevere and thrive when the world outside our window feels so hostile?

The theme of the 2021 NAMI NC Annual Conference is “Growth and Grace.” Presenters will offer sessions related to enriching mental health in anxious times, balancing mental health with social justice, and a variety of other important—and sometimes controversial–issues that we face. And we will learn to show others—and ourselves—the grace we need and deserve in our growth toward recovery.

We hope you will join us in this exciting virtual conference on October 9th!
