Advocacy Spotlight: NAMI Releases New Guide on Crisis Intervention Programs for Youth

NAMI has published a guide titled, Supporting Schools and Communities in Breaking the Prison Pipeline: A Guide to Emerging and Promising Crisis Intervention Programs for Youth, to help inform advocates about existing crisis intervention programs for youth and what they can do to promote and implement such programs in their states and communities.

To download a copy of the guide, click here.  Advocacy fact sheets are being developed to accompany the guide and will be posted online soon at NAMI's CIT Resource Center  and Child and Adolescent Action Center.
