Honoring the Past, Envisioning the Future: Celebrating 40-years of Growth
2019 Research Dinner
One of NAMI Racine County’s strategic priorities is to lead advocacy efforts that promote public awareness and drive increased access to and quality of mental health services. Only 41% of adults in the U.S. with a mental health condition received mental health services in the past year. Among adults with a serious mental illness, only 62.9% received mental health services in the past year. To celebrate NAMI Racine County’s 40th Anniversary, we will be sharing advocacy efforts made by NAMI Wisconsin and NAMI Racine County to highlight the work being done at both the State and community level to address unmet mental health needs. Through educational programs and community outreach, we continue to work with diverse populations in reducing stigma and promoting recovery is possible.
On May 16th, 2019, join us at our Research Dinner at Fountain Banquet Hall in Sturtevant from 5:30 to 8:00pm to learn more about advocacy initiatives in Wisconsin, our trainings and other educational measures NAMI Racine County is taking to help change lives in our community. This year's presenter is Sita Diehl, current co-chair of the NAMI Wisconsin Public Policy and Advisory Committee. She retired in 2017 from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as Director of Policy and State Outreach. Prior to her tenure on the national staff, she served as Executive Director of NAMI Tennessee. She has long been a NAMI Member and a nationally recognized advocate for peers and families.
Registration for the Research Dinner closes at 11:59 pm on May 4, 2019.
