Youth and Family Initiatives

Collaboration is so important these days, especially when trying to meet the changing mental health needs of our Community.  As always, NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties is committed to offering quality programming to families, loved ones and individuals living with mental illness.  Through our education, support and outreach we are able to steadily build awareness and reduce stigma, but one area requiring an immediate need still remains, youth programming.  At this time,  NAMI national is working toward meeting this need.  Until then, NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties has joined with local partners whose programming already meets many of the area family and youth needs.  Here is a list of the important work that is happening with us and our community partners:
