NAMI Wraps Up Annual State Conference

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- The National Alliance on Mental Illness wrapped up its 16th annual state conference this afternoon at the Lansing Convention Center.

Around 200 people attended the two-day event, which focused on mental illness education.

Through keynote speakers and breakout sessions, NAMI members covered issues such as mental health care, diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

"We know that mental health is such a serious issue and one in four people are diagnosed with some form of mental illness, which is a huge number. So the more education we can get out there, we'll have a great opportunity of eliminating the stigma that surrounds mental illness," said NAMI Michigan Board of Directors Vice President Leon Judd.
