NAMI DuPage knows how important it is to provide information on the best educational and supportive services available for people affected by mental illness and for community organizations and service providers. Through the NAMI DuPage Speaker Series, we invite professionals and peers to the table to speak on their experiences and knowledge as it relates to some of the topics that we receive the most questions about. These presentations are open to anyone: family members, individuals, professionals, or general community members.
