The Challenge of Change: Promise and Progress in Mental Health
September 15, 2017$175 – $275
At the 2017 NAMI Washington State Conference, we want to explore the theme of “The Challenge of Change: Promise and Progress in Mental Health.” We are looking for workshop proposals, speakers and experiences for attendees to come to a deeper understanding of how we respond to change and our successes in driving change on personal and community levels.
Change can be paradoxically frightening, challenging and exhilarating in turns. It can even be all three simultaneously. For people living with mental illness, and those who love, live with, work with and support them, there are many levels of change that must be met every day.
NAMI helps individuals change their own lives for the better, through knowledge, inspiration, and support. When we understand the degree to which we can affect change, or not, we can make decisions in our best interests and in the interests of those living with mental illness. NAMI’s programs promote strength in recovery and resiliency in the face of unexpected change.
