NAMI Washington 2019 State Conference
October 4 @ 1:00 pm - October 5 @ 4:00 pm
Forty years ago NAMI began its work fighting stigma and increasing education around mental health issues. This year, the NAMI Washington State Conference will bring together people living with mental illness, family members, legal, medical and research professionals and providers, over two days to explore and celebrate the last 40 years of work in the mental health field, and to consider where we have yet to go.
The conference begins on Friday, October 4th at 1:00 PM and ends on Saturday, October 5th at 4:00 PM.
Below you will find links to register for the conference, make hotel reservations, obtain a scholarship application, as well as submit artwork for the art show.
