One of NAMI Dane County’s strategic priorities is to reduce the criminalization of mental illness. We know that a person having a mental health crisis is often more likely to land in jail than in a hospital. NAMI Dane County has been working to change this by providing crisis intervention training to police, corrections, and other first responders. These trainings focus on how to safely and effectively respond to people with mental illness and are shown to reduce arrests, jail days, hospital stays, and total criminal justice expenditures.

Join us at our Awards Banquet and Gala on April 5, 2018 to learn more about this issue, our trainings and other advocacy measures NAMI Dane County is taking to help change lives in our community.
