The Mental Health Channel is an online network of inspiring documentary videos on mental health topics. Free to view, free to share.

AIR (Anonymous. Inspiring. Relatable) is the new NAMI app, a free, mobile-based social network designed for individuals living with mental health conditions and their family.

Join N.A.M.I. Kane County North as we host a peer-support group and various activities at Ecker Center

located in Elgin, Illinois.

This is a free event and open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays

between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. 

Light refreshments will be provided.

The report sets forth principals for advancing a culture of engagement in mental health care, including:
1. Communicating hope rather than hopelessness;
2. Supporting individuals, whenever possible, to be active participants in their own care;
3. Focusing on the strengths of individuals rather than their deficits;
4. Including family and other close supporters as essential partners in care and recovery; and
5. Recognizing the role of community, culture, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity, age, language and economic status in recovery.
