NAMI Florida Annual Conference
September 16 - September 17
Fran will be speaking at the Young Adult Conference on Saturday night. From 4:30-9pm, NAMI Florida is dedicating their conference to young adults.
The purpose of the annual conference is to inform the membership and the public regarding mental health resources available and legislative changes in the state of Florida that impact persons with mental illness.
This year’s conference will focus on Peer Support and Advocacy, Self-Care, Co-occurring Disorders and Special Populations. The goal of the conference is to explore the needs of veterans, youth, LGTBQ and other populations and discuss strategies to increase engagement and to provide services. We will also explore co- occurring disorders such as substance misuse and autism with SMI diagnoses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. NAMI Florida’s role in peer support will be a focus along with increasing advocacy within the organization.
