NAMI College Guide
Did you know that 75% of mental health conditions begin by age 24? That’s why the college years are so important for understanding and talking about mental health. NAMI has created a guide and video, “Starting the Conversation: College and Your Mental Health” (available at https://nami.org/collegeguide; developed in partnership with The Jed Foundation).

Assisted Outpatient Treatment Webinar
Assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) is a practice used in most states where civil court orders mandate participation in treatment for people with serious mental illness (SMI). AOT was established to ensure that people who are experiencing severe negative consequences from serious mental illness participate in treatment. Thinking carefully about Assisted Outpatient Treatment is a step toward improving treatment for people with serious mental illness. Join NAMI for a SAMHSA-sponsored webinar on August 5 at 12:30 p.m. ET called “Evolution of Assisted Outpatient Treatment”. Register here: https://adobe.ly/2LmaZDZ
