NAMI California Announces 2019 Annual Conference in Newport Beach

If you’ve never been to a NAMI meeting outside of Santa Barbara, here’s your chance to do so at a great location for a fairly reasonable cost while getting the latest updates on mental health research, clinical services and everything NAMI. The conference will include a plenary speaker plus hosted sessions and workshops all crammed full of information of interest to anyone living with a brain disorder or the families of those who do. This year’s conference will be at the Newport Beach Marriott on May 31-June 1. The Early Bird rate of $225 is in effect until March 29 with an additional $35 discount for NAMI members. Rooms at the conference hotel are also discounted while supplies last. For more information, go to www.namica.org

2019 National NAMI Convention Returns to the West Coast
The Hyatt Regency Seattle will host this year’s convention on June 19-22. As in previous years the sessions, workshops and plenaries will be chocked full of useful information on all aspects of mental health, with this year’s highlight being a full day workshop on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for psychosis. Discounted airfares on Alaska Airlines are available out of Santa Barbara Airport. At least 4 members of our local Santa Barbara NAMI have already registered, so if you go, you’ll see at least several friendly faces. Early Bird rates, NAMI membership discounts, and $159/night hotel rates (up to 4 people per room) are available until mid-April. For more information go to nami.org/convention.
