Full Agenda Released for 2019 NAMI California Conference on namica.org

Andres F. Sciolla, M.D. Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at UC Davis will be NAMI CA’s Keynote speaker on the topic of Resilience Education and Supportive Tools for Recovering from Trauma. Other presentations and workshops will cover topics ranging from Compassion Fatigue in Caregivers to Improving Crisis Response to Accessibility to Mental Health Services, and to a NAMI Advocacy Report from NAMI National’s Director of Legislative Affairs, Andrew Sperling J.D. If you’ve never been to a NAMI meeting outside of Santa Barbara, here’s your chance to do so at a great location fairly close by and for a fairly reasonable cost. This year’s conference will be at the Newport Beach Marriott on May 31-June 1. NAMI members earn a $35 discount to normal registration rate. Rooms at the conference hotel are also discounted while supplies last. For more information, go to www.namica.org
