Mental Health Care in Illinois – Today and Tomorrow
How mental health needs in Illinois are being addressed currently with impact of the COVID-10 pandemic on the mental health systems in Illinois and what are the innovations that will equitably address the mental healthcare needs of the future.
Regardless of your role in the mental health arena, you’ll learn something new, meet your counterparts in our networking rooms, find out about our sponsors and exhibitors in virtual trade-show booths, and even earn CEUs if you are a mental health professional.
We look forward to seeing you there.

We also bring their needs to the attention of legislators, service providers, medical staff, and the general public. Investing as a partner of NAMI Illinois will ensure you receive recognition at this well-attended conference and on the NAMI Illinois website. Your support will enable your organization reach new clients, demonstrate your support of mental health, and provide necessary registration scholarships to individuals in need.
