NAMI Nevada 2022 Annual State Education Conference
The NAMI Nevada 2022 Annual State Education Conference will be in person in Reno and virtual via Whova for those that cannot attend in person.
Many of us have personally experienced or witnessed the impacts of mental health and need for ongoing change, but where does “change” start? How can we, in our professions, our daily lives, with our biggest of hearts and intentions, Change Nevada, Change the World for the many Nevadans and global population of those living with mental health? Please join NAMI for this opportunity to learn how you can Change Nevada by understanding the needs, upcoming changes, and more, happening in our communities and across Nevada, with the ability to earn continuing education units.
This year’s 3-day conference will include expert panel discussions, testimonies, valuable information, and resources that involve every family and profession touched by mental health.
Topics and Discussions:
Day 1: Foundation for Recovery – Global Peer Support Day – PRSS Educational Seminar. Peer supporters inspire hope and often fail to recognize and reflect on their contribution to serving others. Furthermore, peer supporters forget to celebrate what they do, let alone acknowledge ‘they’ make a difference on a daily basis in the lives of those they serve (seniors, adults, youth, children, and families). This day of celebration and recognition highlights the impact and contributions peer supporters make in the lives of their peers who are facing mental health, addictions, and or trauma-related challenges.
Day 2: Adult Mental Health – Nevada Caring Contacts, CIT and What it Does for Law Enforcement, MOST and CRT Teams, Crisis Now Across Nevada, 988 National Suicide Number, and Understanding Addiction: A brain-based model
Day 3: Youth Mental Health – The Power of Youth Voice in Creating Change, Youth Panel (homeless youth, foster youth, hospitals, and schools), Children’s Mental Health Panel, The Perils of Social Media on Youth, Restorative Justice in Schools and Communities – A Youth Empowerment Framework, Teen Text Line, Foster Kinship, and School-Based Mental Health Continuum
