We held a productive and inspired Regional Advocacy Meeting with NAMI Yolo County, UC Davis, and community members on Friday, November 8 at UC Davis.
Mental health advocates from Yolo County, Sacramento County, Solano, County, and Amador County joined us for the event to hear from local speakers and participate in breakout sessions.
Speakers included Maggie Fry, Program Director, NAMI Yolo County; James C. Glica-Hernandez, Chair, Yolo County, Local Mental Health Board; Karen Larsen, Director, Yolo County, Health & Human Services Agency; and NAMI California’s Advocacy Coordinator, Avery Hulog-Vicente.
For the collaborative breakout sessions, we discussed what’s working well and what can be improved. Read a summary of the discussions.
