One thing is certain โ€“ NAMI will continue to be here to help anyone in need, offering support, compassion and hope. NAMI represents people from all political backgrounds, and we take positions on policies, not politics or politicians. Regardless of todayโ€™s outcome, weโ€™ll all need to work together to make positive change for people with mental health conditions. You are not alone.

Reducing the Risk of Teen Addiction

Check out this informative podcast from Rogers Behavioral Health: Reducing the Risk of Teen Addiction. Whether itโ€™s vaping, prescription medications, marijuana, nicotine, or alcohol, when teens turn to substance use it can have a major impact on their health and well-being.

But by focusing on prevention, recognizing the signs, and understanding the link between addiction and mental health, we can stop an emerging problem before it begins.

In the 4-part Reducing the Risk of Teen Addiction podcast, Dr. Michelle Maloney, executive director of addiction recovery at Rogers Behavioral Health provides critical insight on who is at risk, the connection between mental health and substance use, and what parents should do if they suspect their teen is using.

Resources for understanding why teens turn to drugs or alcohol, and what to do if you suspect your child is using

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

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. ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐ฌ๐จ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง = ๐๐จ๐ฅ๐ข๐œ๐ž-๐„๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐๐๐ž๐ ๐Œ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ฅ ๐‡๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก ๐‚๐จ-๐‘๐ž๐ฌ๐ฉ๐จ๐ง๐๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ. 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. ๐‘บ๐’†๐’‘๐’‚๐’“๐’‚๐’•๐’†, ๐’‰๐’‚๐’“๐’Ž๐’๐’๐’Š๐’๐’–๐’”, ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’†๐’‚๐’„๐’‰ ๐’—๐’†๐’“๐’š ๐’๐’†๐’„๐’†๐’”๐’”๐’‚๐’“๐’š. https://www.city-journal.org/html/cit-and-its-limits-15329.html
