Conference Highlight: Michael Fitzpatrick
On Day 1-- Friday, April 23 -- we are thrilled to welcome NAMI National's Executive Director Michael Fitzpatrick as our keynote speaker. Mr. Fitzpatrick will share with participants the importance of developing collaborative relationships to heighten the effectiveness of local, state and national advocacy efforts.
With impending changes in the mental health landscape due to statewide budget cuts, the end of the Rendell administration and the evolution of national healthcare reform, partnerships among mental health advocates across the system are vital. When grassroots advocates through local NAMI affiliates connect with NAMI National, combined efforts ensure a louder, more effective voice in championing a transformed menteal health system in the future.
