NAMI In Our Own Voice
NAMI In Our Own Voice is a presentation for the general public to promote awareness of mental health conditions and recovery.
NAMI Ending the Silence
NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps audience members learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of mental illness.
Crisis Intervention Team Training
In over 2,700 communities nationwide, CIT programs create connections between law enforcement, mental health providers, hospital emergency services and individuals with mental illness and their families. Through collaborative community partnerships and intensive training, CIT improves communication, identifies mental health resources for those in crisis and ensures officer and community safety.
On the 4th and 5th days of this five day training, NAMI Charleston Area volunteers share their stories of lived experience with mental illness and participate in role play with law enforcement and other first responders.
