Community Inclusion Training!

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. NAMI NC’s Community Inclusion program (CI) focuses on how individuals with mental illness can find natural supports and activities with others in their community. NAMI NC is offering free training on how to start a program in your community. The 2-day training classes begin in mid-December. Click here for more information
