HIGHLIGHTS FROM 2020:

 

  • NAMI San Joaquin switched to a safe, on-line format so we can practice safe distancing while we continue to connect emotionally. In December 2020 alone, over 300 people made use of NAMI SJC online meetings.
  • Through NAMI CONNECTIONS, peers met online to support each other. With a total of six regular meetings a month, support for people dealing with mental health challenges during a time of crisis was never more than a few days away.
  • Twice a month, NAMI FAMILY SUPPORT GROUPS allowed family member of people with mental health challenges to provide each other with perspective and empathy.
  • Our NAMI COMMUNITY MEETINGS provided a chance bimonthly for peers, family members, and service providers in the community to come together to share information.
  • Through nine NAMI IN OUR OWN VOICE presentations, those living in recovery spoke to those struggling sharing their stories about overcoming and going on to function happy and healthy in society.
  • Through NAMI BASICS, people with lived experience raising a child with a mental health condition spoke with six parents, caregivers, and professionals who work with children to discuss the impact of mental health conditions on the family, and how to advocate and care for a child with mental health challenges in educational, healthcare and the juvenile justice systems.
  • Through the NAMI PEER TO PEER class, people with mental health challenges helped 14 peers learn more about recovery in an accepting environment.
  • Through the NAMI FAMILY TO FAMILY class, family members of people with mental health challenges provided information, strategies, compassion, and reinforcement for 23 new families who wanted to know more about supporting the people they love.
  • This year NAMI SJC won an award at the state level for our efforts to educate and support high school students faced with the onset of mental health challenges, through NAMI ON CAMPUS clubs at six San Joaquin County high schools.
