NAMI WA Announces Signature Program Training Dates

NAMI Washington has announced their training dates for the 2019 Signature Programs which allows local affiliates to bring these programs to their communities.  All trainings are offered at no cost to participants.  All NAMI members may apply to attend these State Training programs; however, space is limited so early registration is recommended.  Additional information and eligibility requirements are in each online application packet.  For more information,  contact Deanna Roy at or 206-783-4288.

We encourage you to consider becoming a facilitator, teacher, or presenter under one or more of these programs.  These programs are the heart of who we are and what we provide for our community.  Your involvement can help make a difference for the individuals family members who are affected by mental illness.  

Please note that the first training classes, the Family Support Group (January 12-13) and NAMI Recovery Connection (Feb 2-3),  are two of our most popular programs and have early deadlines.  NAMI Connection is a weekly peer-led recovery support group for individuals with mental health diagnoses. The Family Support Group is for family members, caregivers, and friends supporting or caring for a loved one with mental illness who meet to share their challenges and benefit from each other’s lived experiences and support.
