NAMI Meeting

Encounters between police and individuals with a mental illness are not uncommon. Several well-publicized events make clear the lack of adequate training many police have in dealing with someone affected by a mental illness. These events also make more evident the crisis in mental health services. Come to the upcoming meeting of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to participate in a discussion of opportunities there are to address these challenges. Learn about programs being used in police departments around the country. The meeting is at St. James Episcopal Church, beginning at 6 p.m. on Jan. 21. NAMI is the largest grassroots organization in the United States devoted to lessen the burden of suffering and stigmatization of those affected by a mental illness through education, advocacy and research efforts. For more information call Carol Jones at 304-445-7866 or Suzanne Williams at 304-646-1236.
