National Alliance on Mental Illness

1) We are about education, advocacy and support
2) Our local affiliate was founded in 1988
3) We are a United Way Member

Are you familiar with NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness? It is the largest grassroots organization in the country and your local NAMI affiliate serves Sandusky, Seneca and Wyandot Counties. NAMIs mission is to provide support and education to family, friends and individuals affected by or living with someone with a mental illness including PTSD, depression and anxiety disorders. NAMI also works with local law enforcement, first responders and other agencies to provide education and support as well. Two educational programs that I feel are especially important to this community are the QPR - SAVING LIVES training, a talk about understanding suicide and depression. This training is currently being given at Terra State Community College in addition to other organizations.

The second is CIT or Crisis Intervention Team Training, a 40 hour training program for law enforcement personnel and first responders and trains them how to resolve a crisis using de-escalation techniques and education. This past year we have trained 58 law enforcement personnel in CIT. These are important and needed programs in our community.
