SAVE THE DATE: NAMI Illinois Conference Oct. 18-19, 2019

NAMI Illinois Conference in nearby Techny, IL

In addition to DHS Secretary Grace Hou presenting on Friday, we have finalized details for Emerging Research and Best Practices Saturday!

NIMH Unit Director Dr. Susan Afrin is coming to talk about research on First Episode Psychosis Interventions and Health Prevention techniques that help to lower the early mortality risk of persons with mental illness.

Research has shown that people with a chronic mental health diagnosis die on average 25 years earlier than the general population. Find out why and how we can help correct that. We will complement this by highlighting local agency programs that are putting that research into action.

CEUs will be available thanks to the Lake County Health Department!
