Education Spring 2018 Update
Changes to Peer-to-Peer and In Our Own Voice!
Facilitator training for these two programs are changing and will include computer-based learning. This will allow presenters to start their training online and finish in person with an actual NAMI Mississippi State Trainer. All current presenters and trainers are required to be recertified by the end of May. If you need information about the recertification process, please contact Program Director Sitaniel J. Wimbley at 601-899-9058 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your assistance and continued dedication to NAMI Mississippi.

Did you know that your community is better prepared to handle mental health emergency calls? This past January, 12 officers took a 40-hour law enforcement class regarding mental health and crisis response at Hinds Behavioral Health Services.
Congratulations, CIT Officers! Welcome to the Hinds County Crisis Intervention Team.
