2015 NAMI National Convention

2015 NAMI National Convention


The 2015 NAMI National Convention begins July 6th in beautiful San Francisco.

This will be my first time attending the National Convention and I could not be more excited. As the incoming President of NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties, I seek greater knowledge and insight about what is happening for the advancement of Mental Health Awareness and Programming on the National level. I believe such invaluable information helps keep our affiliate on track as we continue to offer top quality programming and education.

More importantly, I am excited to help promote the great State of Colorado, as Denver prepares to host the 2016 NAMI National Convention. This announcement was made earlier in the year and could not be better news for our State. NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties will be well prepared as stewards of the Convention, welcoming our fellow comrades from around the nation.

The itinerary for this year’s event doesn’t disappoint. It promises to offer much information, as well as accomplished and esteemed guest speakers. A few such speakers who are:

Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.
Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., ABPP
Theo Bennett
Sophia Vinogradov, M.D.
Robert Heinssen, Ph.D.

I cannot share all the event and exhibits here, but if you have a minute, take a look at the week’s events @ https://www.nami.org I look forward to sharing the wealth of information gleaned at the Convention when I return. Stay tuned…

In the meantime, have a safe summer and thank you for your continued support in NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties.

Be Well,

Jason Hopcus
