Summer 2017 Education Update
by Sitaniel J. Wimbley, Program Director
NAMI Mississippi is elated to announce the completion of the 2017 NAMI MS Training Academy. The Academy was held at Eagle Ridge Conference Center in Raymond. There were 27 participants who were trained and certified as NAMI Leaders. We at the NAMI MS State Office are certain that these individuals will be great additions to our growing family of NAMI MS Program Leaders. Thanks to everyone across the state who came together to assist in making the 2017 NAMI Training Academy possible! We would especially like to thank Kawanna Jenkins for all her work and dedication.
Deloris McGee and Sarah Johnson offered Family-to-Family course in Vicksburg. From that class, 12 individuals graduated, and one elected to become a NAMI Program Leader. Thomas Carson and Monica Walters are currently leading the Peer-to-Peer course in Central Mississippi. We wish them the best of luck on their completion of the course. We currently have a number of continuous support groups around the state. Thanks to all the NAMI Program Leaders for your valuable efforts – it is greatly appreciated. We look forward to more successful classes in the future.
