Suicide Prevention Month
Every person and organization in California can play a role in suicide prevention by knowing the signs of suicide, finding the words to support a friend or family member, and by reaching out to and promoting local and national resources. The Know the Signs Toolkit provides effective, interactive ways to promote suicide prevention.

Our NAMI Peer-to-Peer class will be starting soon. This is a free, eight-session educational program for adults with mental health conditions. NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a safe, confidential space that provides an opportunity for mutual support and growth. Experience compassion and understanding from people who relate to your experiences.
Tulare County Mental Health Board Meetings
The Tulare County Mental Health Board meets on the first Tuesday of each month, at 3:00 pm, via ZOOM. Public comment is at the beginning of their meeting. Click on the agenda for the month you want to attend to find the link to the meeting.

Each year, NAMI California hosts a state conference to examine important trends, best practices, new treatments, activities in mental health, and ways we can work together to improve care and services for individuals, families, and communities. This year's agenda: Advocacy, Consumer & Families, Criminal Justice, Early Intervention & Prevention, and Engaging Diverse Communities.
