The NAMI National Convention is one of the largest annual gatherings of mental health advocates in the nation. This year's theme "Live. Learn. Share hope." describes the NAMI experience. Our collective voice spreads hope that recovery is possible and families can be whole again. The NAMI National Convention connects people affected by mental illness who are looking for resources, research and support. Attendees include individuals with mental illness, family members, caregivers, advocates, policymakers, educators, researchers, clinicians and press.
