#NotAlone #MinorityMentalHealth

In honor of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month (July 2020) we decided to paint a mural on our building to spread positivity and awareness. Although mental illness affects everyone, not everyone has the same access to treatment and quality of care.

WISE

Join WISE for their Annual Partner (if you are interested in mental health stigma reduction in the state of Wisconsin, you are a partner with WISE) meeting. It will be virtual on Tuesday, August 18th via Microsoft Teams at 9:30am. We will be watching "Finding Your Fairytale." After the showing there will be a panel discussion with two of the cast members from 11:10am-Noon.
Watch the trailer - https://youtu.be/Yggsv-Tw7n8

"The prince and princesses in our story are fighting battles much more realistic than an evil queen or a vicious dragon. Instead, they tell real-life tales about overcoming present day issues that plague many in our society. Finding Your Fairytale aims to inspire others to continue writing their stories, to keep fighting their battles, and to believe that happily ever after is not only attainable, but well deserved."

PM for Link to join the meeting.

Diverse Communities | NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness

July is Minority Mental Health Month. Since 2008, July marks a time to acknowledge and explore issues concerning mental health in minority communities, to de-stigmatize mental illness and enhance public awareness.

Cultural differences and race can affect how we perceive and experience mental health conditions. For example, one study showed 63% of African Americans surveyed believe a mental health condition is a personal 'sign of weakness.' Differences can influence which treatments, coping mechanisms and supports are available or recommended, too, and must be considered as we discuss mental health and mental health care in communities of color.

You are not alone. We're here to help! Contact us, 414-344-0447

Discover how diverse communities can receive better care when a mental health professional takes into account cultural needs and differences.

NAMI Homefront is a free, 6-session program for family, friends and significant others of military Service Members and Veterans. The class helps families understand what the Service Member/ Veteran is experiencing related to trauma, combat stress, civilian life transition, PTSD and other mental health conditions.

The program is designed to help family members understand and support their Service Member/Veteran while maintaining their own well-being. NAMI Homefront leaders have personal experience with mental health conditions impacting their Service Member/ Veteran. The class is free but you are expected to attend all six sessions. You must have access to a laptop, PC or tablet with a stable internet connection to participate. To hear audio, you will need to call in via telephone. We recommend you use a headset or headphones.

An application process is required to ensure this program is a good fit. Space is limited.

#NAMI walks. Walked 3 miles in Sheboygan by the lake. with Donna Huntley Schelfhout
I am really missing the Saturday support group. I am hoping some of my peers will see this and reach out by adding me as a friend or private messaging me. Maybe we can get a virtual meeting going.
A very great organization and resource for those in the Milwaukee area!
Sorry so late , I wanted to thank everyone who came and joined us this year during this years NAMIWalk at Veterans Park at the lake front. It was my first time attending and a pleasure to attend. I look forward to up and coming events. #ShareYourStory

𝘾𝙄𝙏 & 𝙀𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙙𝙙𝙚𝙙 𝘾𝙤-𝙍𝙚𝙨𝙥𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨 - 𝙬𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙚 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙛𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙡 𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜. There is a key reality about CIT that is usually ignored. CIT does not exist because we lack an "effective mental healthcare system" (though that deficit exists) - CIT exists due to the fact that mental health care professionals cannot respond on-scene fast enough (making police call times too long) and police culture has resisted the idea of giving "civilians" influence/control on-scene (not embedded = poor collaboration). The most expansive and effective MHC system would still not solve these problems (separate silos) or change the fact that police will (always will) have a huge number of contacts (often accidental and/or unavoidable) with persons in crisis. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 = 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐞-𝐄𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐌𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐇𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝐂𝐨-𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬. Embedding a clinician produces a permanent team (with specialized officers) to take calls and remove the burden from regular patrol officers who have less interest in this work. It greatly improves outcomes (powerful on-scene assessment) and promotes de-escallation. Research also shows it reduces burdens on both LE and Mental HC systems via reductions in cyclic police contact with persons in crisis and big reductions in unnecessary transfers to over-burdened mental HC facilities. p.s. CIT is needed to elevate police performance & Embedded Co-Responders are needed as a part of the effective, ranging, and collaborative MHC system we wish to build.
