BONUS SUNDAY - August 13
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join other advocates to discuss the critical role that individuals living with behavioral health diagnosis and their family members play in the implementation of CIT. Referred to by Major Sam Cochran as “the accountability partner,” advocates are more than the “snack lady.” Advocates are one of the three required partners in the best practice model of CIT. To be effective in advancing CIT, advocates need to have a strong understanding of the model and the critical role they should hold on the team. This conversation will allow advocates to hear from members of the CIT board and one another about the full scope of their roles and innovative ways to ensure diverse perspectives are respected.
Please join other NAMI leaders and advocates for this important conversation. Please bring your challenges and successful innovations to this open conversation. We are stronger together.
Light Refreshments will be provided. Cost: $10.00
