After a busy opening day, the convention kicked into high gear Thursday morning when Sen. Patrick Kennedy received the Distinguished Service Award at the Legislative Plenary.
Then, hundreds of NAMI members converged on Capitol Hill to make their voice heard loud and clear, "Mental health care gets my vote!"
As the day progresses we will add photos and video highlights from the sites at the Hilton Washington. Also, be sure to follow the convention using Twitter tag "#NAMI2010"
