About the Training

We are so pleased to welcome colleagues from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) North Carolina to lead us in a discussion of the intersections of domestic violence and mental illness.

Training description: "Together we will explore how mental illness may impact the experiences of individuals receiving services and care from domestic violence agencies. Presenters will provide introductory information about mental illness, common diagnoses, and symptoms, as well as information on how to effectively help an individual living with mental illness who is seeking help from a DV agency. Participants will gain an understanding of how to better identify a mental illness, as well as learn how to access community supports for individuals living with mental illness. This training is intended for new and experienced advocates, as well as campus representatives and other allied professionals."

NAMI envisions a future in which "mental illness will no longer thwart a person’s fulfillment of his or her potential. With early pinpoint diagnoses, interventions and targeted medications and services there is no pervasive disability. Ultimately, we envision a day when prevention or a cure is found. NAMI NC's goal is to advocate at the county, state and national levels for non-discriminatory access to quality healthcare, housing, education and employment for people with mental illness.
