For Providers and First Responders
NAMI Sharing Your Story with Law Enforcement (SYSLE) is a presentation program that prepares individuals and family members to share their stories of lived experience with mental illness to a law enforcement audience, such as during Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training, or other events where mental illness and related topics are featured.
NAMI Provider is a four-hour staff development program for health care organizations that provide services for people affected by mental illness. This unique program is led by people living well in recovery, family members and health care providers. The presenters share their personal, intimate perspective on their treatment experience. Each Team consists of a provider, family member, and individual living with a mental health condition. The primary goal of the program is to promote collaboration between the client, family and health care staff. When everyone is engaged in the recovery process there are better outcomes.
