Program Training Support Announcement

With funding awarded from the Mental Health Oversight and Accountability Commission, NAMI California seeks to support engagement and program development through training support opportunities. This would help organizations across the state to conduct local trainings that reach family members or loved ones of those with a mental health condition. NAMI Affiliates can apply for the following program training support opportunities:

– Family to Family Teacher Training- $3,000.00
