The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) hosted their annual California Conference in Burlingame, CA on August 26 and 27. NAMI provides invaluable resources and is a lifeline of support for people who need information about mental health.
This year’s conference, “Back to the Future: Building on the Past for a Better Tomorrow,” featured sessions and workshops that focused on advocacy, criminal justice, consumer and family engagement, transitional aged youth, and diverse communities. The conference’s keynote speakers were Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries, and Professor Cyndi Shannon Weickert, a leading researcher on schizophrenia.
Telecare is proud to partner with NAMI branches in all of our communities. We were thrilled to chat with consumers and families at the conference and learn about the issues that are most important to them.
