This year’s conference theme, Growing Stronger Together, will focus on the strength of NAMI as a grassroots organization. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to celebrate the many unique connections grassroots organizations can create, while also learning how to use these connections to make the mental health system more collaborative.

The event will once again host a large variety of audiences, including mental health providers, leaders, social workers, clinicians, government officials, criminal justice partners, consumers, and family members. Mental health advocates from all over the state are welcome to attend.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Judith A. Cook as the keynote speaker for our NAMI Wisconsin Annual Conference 2020! Dr. Cook is a professor and director at the Center on Mental Health Services Research & Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is an internationally recognized authority on mental health services research, specifically the study of clinical and rehabilitation outcomes of children and adults receiving community-based care.
