Mental Health Awareness Walk
NAMI Western Nevada (NAMI WNV) and Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC) began the collaborative partnership for NAMI Western Nevada in Corrections in August 2017. The collaboration began as a pilot program that included NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group and Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training and has proved to be a successful and impactful program. Thanks to this success the program has continued to expand to create a full spectrum program of mental health awareness and supportive programs involving inmates, free staff, and Correctional Officers. The partnership developed the programs slowly, building off each success to create a sustainable and replicable program that is creating cultural changes in how mental health is viewed at NNCC.
Please help us continue these programs by supporting the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 719 and NAMI Western Nevada Walk for Mental Health Awareness. You can support our efforts by sponsoring yourself or a friend/family member, sponsoring an inmate to walk, sponsoring a diagnosis or donating to the program.
