Our regional advocacy meetings in Contra Costa County, Kern County, and Riverside County have been invaluable tools for NAMI California to engage with local affiliates and stakeholders to determine what mental health issues are most impacting each California region. Thank you to all who have participated!
NAMI California’s regional advocacy meetings are in partnership with local affiliates in several different regions. Regional advocacy meetings are designed to bring together members of the public, community-based organizations (NAMI CA, NAMI Affiliates, and Partners), and county staff to talk about the public planning process. Meetings bolster collaboration and help strengthen the relationship between family members and staff. In addition, NAMI California will cover NAMI Smarts for Advocacy materials to conduct at least 1 module depending on the needs of attendees. Everyone from peers, family members, providers, county staff and community members are welcome to join us. Materials used and topics discussed will support advocacy endeavors for participating attendees. Below are our upcoming meetings.
Each registration link below also includes an optional questionnaire to help us gather important data and inform materials for the meeting. For any questions email Marcel@namica.org
