In the year before 988 becomes widely available, we need all levels of government to ensure that no matter when or where people call 988, there are well-trained staff to answer the call, mobile crisis teams to provide an in-person response, and crisis stabilization programs that can get people on the path to follow-up care.
The theme of NAMICon 2021 is "Bringing People Together for Mental Health – The Time is Now" and includes sessions focused on advancing mental health research, crisis care that focuses on building community mental health resources, culture and identity disparities in mental health, and youth and young adult mental health.
Here at NAMI, we recognize that there are no quick and easy solutions to the systemic racism that has permeated every aspect of our society for far too long. Today, only one in three Black adults who need mental health care receive it. But we are committed to keep striving toward more equitable and just practices within our own organization and within the mental health community.
Today’s verdict is historic. Unlike in so many other cases of racial violence, justice has been served. This is a victory, but the fight for racial justice and against systemic racial violence is not over.
