UPCOMING CLASSES   (priorities will be given to nami members)

NAMI LCH believes too many people with mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use disorders who commit non-violent offenses end up in the criminal justice system inappropriately. We advocates for public policies that enhance both public and law enforcement officer safety, promote people with these disorders will re-offend or have repeated involvement with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.

The goal of NAMI LCH’s CWC Program is to work toward a statewide system of care utilizing already identified Promising Practices in Early Childhood Mental Health as an approach to plan, coordinate and deliver the services and supports vital to children and youth with emerging-to-serious mental health concerns, as well as their families.
