As one of the largest community gatherings of mental health advocates in the U.S., NAMICon provides an incredible opportunity to bring awareness, resources and solutions to a wider audience of people affected by mental health conditions — both nationally and globally.
The pandemic and global events of the past two years have had a profound effect on everyone’s mental health — individuals, youth, families, communities of color and frontline professionals. It’s more important than ever for us to join Together for Mental Health, a timely and appropriate theme for our 2022 convention.
NAMI is pleased to announce the first day plenary speaker for NAMICon 2022, actor, author and mental health advocate Mayim Bialik.
Mayim Hoya Bialik is best known for her award-winning portrayal of Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and as the current co-host of “Jeopardy!” She is also a champion for mental health awareness and advocacy. Bialik earned a B.S. and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCLA where she studied obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and she’s authored multiple books, two of which reached #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
Our full schedule of workshops, plenaries and special events is now available! Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to hear inspiring speakers and learn from mental health leaders and experts at the largest community gathering of mental health advocates in the U.S. NAMICon will offer more than 30 workshops dedicated to mental health research, crisis response systems, promoting equitable care and support for underserved communities, and youth-focused programming.
