State Conference 2014

Only $45 for NAMI Members, and $70 for future-Members.

Our State Conference will be held this year on Friday, October 3, 2014. We will convene at the Indianapolis Marriott North, Indianapolis, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

We are very excited to welcome William Cope Moyers as our afternoon keynote address. Mr. Moyers is a national expert on addictions, co-occurring serious mental illnesses, family support and advocacy, and recovery.

A morning plenary featuring experts from the Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis (PARC) will anchor the day. PARC is a leading research and treatment center, and its leaders will talk about new outreach to families and people living with mental illnesses, as well as hopeful new avenues for research.

The Conference will include workshops on:

The Importance of Family and Youth Voice in Juvenile Justice

Recovery: What it Means to You - Person, Family, Provider Working Together in New Ways

Lifestage Planning for the Caregiver: What Happens When I'm Not There? How to Plan Mentally and Emotionally

Why Peer-Led Programs are Sweeping the Country: Their Power and How to Advocate for Them

Finally, Ask The Doctor Sessions in the afternoon will offer the chance to connect with leading physicians about the latest treatment and research around serious mental illnesses, and a special session on new landscapes in health coverage.
