MIAW activities vary by NAMI State Organization and NAMI Affiliate. In some cases, activities may occur a week or so before or after the formal week, particularly if multiple events are planned. Please contact local NAMI Affiliates for specific information.
Not everyone may be able to participate in a public event. Some people don't know much about mental illness. Others have limited time to devote to learning more. NAMI suggests a few basic steps that can be informative and to some degree even fun. Friends especially can encourage friends to take them to increase personal awareness during MIAW or any time of the year.
