I’m IN: Community Inclusion Webinar


Adapting Community Inclusion to Circumstances of 2020

June 25, 2020, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST


Community Inclusion (CI) is exactly what it sounds like; creating a community that includes everyone. Unfortunately, stigma and other issues present barriers for peers to participate in their own community. NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) NC Affiliates believe that everyone has a right to be included, regardless if someone is living with a mental illness or not. Furthermore, studies show that peers that participate in their communities are more likely to find recovery and have an improved quality of life. CI is changing the way we look at recovery, and even more, it is changing the way we look at mental illness. Instead of telling peers how they should act to “fit” into a community, we are asking the communities to change their perspectives about mental illness and create more welcoming and embracing environments for everyone.

Over the past few months, NAMI NC has trained 13 different NAMI NC affiliates on how to become CI Champions. Through grants funded by NCDHHS and SAMSHA, 5 NAMI NC affiliates are working hard to create CI projects in their own area. Join us for a webinar lead by i2i and NAMI NC CI leaders to learn about the CI projects currently happening locally. We will be discussing the challenges that COVID-19 and other hurdles 2020 has presented, and how to adapt to these conditions. NAMI NC is committed to the Community Inclusion movement, even through this pandemic, until those with serious mental illness can participate in their communities just like everyone else.
