NAMI California Annual Conference 2019

Social Model Recovery Systems gratefully participated as an exhibitor at NAMI California’s 2019 Statewide Conference held this year in Newport Beach. NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) is a grassroots organization of families and individuals whose lives have been affected by serious mental illness which has partnered with Social Model Recovery Systems for multiple decades. This year’s plenary sessions and workshop topics focused on early intervention and prevention, advocacy, family wellness, best practices for treatment providers, and criminal justice. Many visitors to the booth remarked at the agency’s variety of offerings, specifically noting interest in referring their loved ones to SMRS’s treatment programs for those with co-occurring disorders. We look forward to continuing to nurture our relationship with NAMI and hopefully participating in next year’s event!
