Welcome to the Montana chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
NAMI Montana Webinar Series on Mental Illness
Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Montana Conference on Mental Illness is replaced with a webinar series sharing insights from leading researchers, clinicians and advocates to improve Montana’s mental illness treatment and recovery system. The webinar series will take place twice a month through February.
We are offering FREE continuing education units from the comfort of your own home or office. [Hourly credits for LCSW, LMSW, LBSW, LCPC, LMFT, LAC, and CBHPSS]
In addition to the family to family and peer to peer courses, we are happy to host an annual conference featuring presentations by top researchers, authors, and other figures from the mental illness field. We can’t wait to shair details about our upcoming 2021 conference, located in beautiful Kalispell Montana, and scheduled for October 20th to 22nd.
