It’s not too early to start planning for NAMI’s next national convention, which will be held Sept. 3-6, 2014 in Washington, D.C. The theme will be Advocates for Change: From Dialogue to Action.
One reason for starting early is that the deadline for submitting workshop proposals is Dec. 15, 2013. Notification of decisions will be made by Feb. 15, 2014.
Workshops are a popular part of every convention, where people find practical information and develop new skills for education, support, advocacy and learning about paths to recovery. They provide lively personal exchanges, involving both national and grassroots experts and innovators.
Workshops are scheduled for 75 minutes, focused on a specific topic. They may involve a single presenter, or more often a panel of two to three persons.
At NAMI’s last national convention in San Antonio, some workshops included:
Only one proposal per person can be submitted. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
We’re always accepting submissions to the NAMI Blog! We feature the latest research, stories of recovery, ways to end stigma and strategies for living well with mental illness. Most importantly: We feature your voices.
Check out our Submission Guidelines for more information.
