We were thrilled to hold this NAMI's Ask the Expert as a live broadcast from the 2018 NAMI National Convention in New Orleans. “Improving Mental Health Care Through Inclusion and Compassion: Lessons from the Field” was available both for convention attendees or online users who registered ahead.
In this replay, you’ll hear (and watch!) presentations from a health care administrator, a medical school professor, a person with lived experience and a family member. Each will share their unique role in ensuring that people seeking mental health treatment are treated with respect, dignity and equality.
Some of the topics our panel discuss include:
- Why it’s important for health care organizations to embrace the concept of working collaboratively.
- Why it’s important for medical professionals to understand the lived experience of their patients.
- Why we need to engage families in the treatment process.
- And any questions from the live audience and participants on the phone.
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.
