NAMI’s Multicultural Action Center Releases New Sharing Hope Brochure

Research has shown that African Americans seek help from the clergy more frequently than from other professionals, and mental health issues are no exception. When dealing with mental illness, African American families might look for guidance, support and understanding from their faith community.

Such reasons are why NAMI has developed Sharing Hope: Understanding Mental Health, a presentation targeted at the African American community to increase awareness of mental health recovery and introduce NAMI education and support programs. Click here to view and download the new Sharing Hope program tri-fold brochure. This is a great tool for NAMI states and local affiliates working with Sharing Hope to use in reaching out to local congregations.
