Program description NAMI DANE COUNTY PROVIDES WEEKLY OR BI-WEEKLY SUPPORT GROUPS FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS AT NO COST. ADDITIONALLY, WE OFFER FAMILY AND CONSUMER PEER LED EDUCATION PROGRAMS AT NO COST. THESE EDUCATION AND SUPPORT PROGRAMS ARE DESIGNED TO FACILITATE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF MENTAL ILLNESS, INCREASE COPING SKILLS, PROMOTE HEALING AND RECOVERY, AND EMPOWER PARTICIPANTS TO BECOME ADVOCATES. WE REACHED 1,197 PEOPLE THROUGH OUR SUPPORT GROUPS AND EDUCATION CLASSES IN 2016. WITH ADDITIONAL GRANT FUNDING RECEIVED IN FALL 2016 WE WERE ABLE TO DEVELOP AND PILOT THE BRIDGING HEARTS AND MINDS PROGRAM, WHICH IS A SEVEN-WEEK EDUCATION COURSE FOR PEOPLE WITH ANXIETY/DEPRESSION. THE PROGRAM USES MINDFULNESS AND YOGA TO IMPROVE THEIR MENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, AS WELL AS DECREASE SUICIDAL IDEATION. THIS PROGRAM REACHED 12 PEOPLE DURING THE CALENDAR YEAR. WE ALSO IMPLEMENTED A NEW PROJECT CALLED THE RECOVERY BAG PROJECT. RECOVERY BAGS ARE A THERAPEUTIC TOOLKIT SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO HELP INDIVIDUALS MANAGE THEIR ILLNESS AND GAIN HEALTHY COPING STRATEGIES DURING EMOTIONALLY TRYING TIMES. THE BAG IS FILLED WITH SENSORY ITEMS USED TO DE-ESCALATE MENTAL HEALTH CRISES AND INCLUDES EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THAT LINK INDIVIDUALS TO COMMUNITY RESOURCES, AS WELL AS NAMI DANE COUNTY PEER SUPPORT PROGRAMS. IN 2016, 350 BAGS WERE PROVIDED TO THE COMMUNITY. OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER WAS HELD IN OCTOBER DURING MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK. THERE WERE NEARLY 1,000 PARTICIPANTS AND WE RAISED JUST OVER $165,000. THE NAMI WALK IS AN AWARENESS EVENT FOCUSED ON ELIMINATING STIGMA ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS. THE FUNDS RAISED FROM THE EVENT GO TO HELP SUPPORT IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR PROGRAMS AND OPERATIONS WITHIN THE OFFICE.
