NAMI Massachusetts is pleased to announce that we are accepting workshop proposals for our 40th Annual State Convention, to be held in-person on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at The Westin Waltham. Learn more about the Convention.
The theme of this year’s convention is Changing Tomorrow Together. We are seeking proposals for in-person workshops that reflect this theme. Morning workshops will run from 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM and afternoon workshops will run from 2:15 PM – 3:45 PM. Workshops can be either 90 minutes or 75 minutes.
Proposed workshops should be of interest to people living with mental health conditions, family members supporting loved ones with mental health conditions, NAMI affiliate leaders, young adults, people working in the mental health field, mental health advocates and educators.
All workshops should include a clear plan for audience participation and engagement. Preference will also be given to workshop proposals that incorporate the voices and stories of people living with mental health conditions and/or their family members and supporters.
Workshop proposals must be received by Friday, August 19, 2022 in order to be considered. Workshop space is limited. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee and all applicants will be notified if they are accepted by Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
