NAMI Denver Educational Programs
NAMI Denver provides several educational opportunities for people who want or need to know more about mental illness.
Education is critical for the well-being of consumers and family members alike. It provides us with a greater understanding of mental illness, and insights on how to manage it. Education also provides us with resources to make healthy decisions given the situation each of us finds ourselves in.
