Connecticut’s 2013 NAMI Walks is our TENTH ANNIVERSARY Walk. Over the last ten years we have raised almost a million dollars to help support our NAMI Connecticut education, support and advocacy program. The Walk is also our premier event to raise awareness about mental illness and to help reduce stigma and other barriers to care.
Our team captains really make a difference. Their hard work, organization, willingness to solicit funds and bring their teams together on Walk day helped us attract over 1,200 at our last Walk.
And, being a team captain is FUN! Throughout the months leading up to
Walk day we hold team captain “challenges” that provide individual captains with great gifts and donor sponsored activities. There’s also a great post-walk event for all team captains where we honor those who helped us so much.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THIS VERY SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY WALK. We can’t do it without you!
NOPE Task Force lights up the night to remember those lost to and suffering from the disease of addiction. Many lives have been destroyed by substance abuse and the disease of addiction. Too often, this disease is perceived as deserved and shameful, leaving families to grieve in silence, or an addict struggling to recover alone. The NOPE Vigil strives to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery by eliminating the prejudice that follows the disease of addiction. The vigil is held in memory of the 30,000 United States citizens who die from accidental drug poisonings each year. Please join us for this special event honoring those whose lives have been lost, while giving hope to those who are still on the road to recovery.
Effective substance abuse and psychiatric treatment with young adults must be evidence based and address all behaviors of concern and underlying psychosocial and biological risk. As the field of substance abuse and psychiatric care approaches the full implementation of the ACA on January 1, 2014, the need to demonstrate evidence based practices will be key to receiving third party reimbursement for effective care. This conference will provide attendees with real skills to evaluate and treat young people with a variety of co-occurring illnesses, address the current climate of prescription drugs as gateway drugs, present the role of assessing the true risks of self harm and more.
THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.
