Co-occurring mental illness and addiction are brain diseases that affect individuals, families, and communities regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, or upbringing. There is no magic bullet for these chronic illnesses, but there are effective treatments through which recovery is achieved.
John and Walter will host a discussion regarding the Evidence Based Practice – Family Education and Support. This discussion will describe an evidence-based model of family psycho-education where a family member has a co-occurring disorder. They will also discuss the stress-vulnerability model, and communication within the family.

Dear NAMI Members, Consumers, Families, Friends, Supporters,
As some of you may know, Governor Scott vetoed our “Vincent House Project.” I am proud of all of you who took the time to write or email the Governor even though he disregarded our Call to Action efforts. By your actions, we have made known to our elected officials, community leaders, NAMI consumers, NAMI family and friends, and NAMI supporters that we are continuing our focus and efforts in bringing the Vincent House to Hernando County.
We will not give up hope but become even stronger and more willing to work even harder and smarter in this coming year. We cannot and will not let this one disappointing swipe of the Governor’s pen take away our promised commitment to those in our community and surrounding communities who depend on each one of us for the mental health services they need.
I spoke with our President, David Lambert this morning. He said the veto action has been very unfortunate. He further related that everyone remain focused and not to get discouraged. We must remain positive and let the consumers, families and friends know that the governor’s actions will not adversely affect our day to day operations and services.
We have done so much good this year and it has paid off. We thank all those who have supported NAMI through your dollar donations, sponsorsips and voluntary service. This coming year, we have the opportunity to raise more funds and better prepare for the Vincent House.
So I say, THANK YOU to each one of you for all your hard work this year and join me in my commitment to make this coming year even more successful.
NAMI Hernando, Inc.
