Approximately 2 million individuals who suffer from serious mental illness are incarcerated each year across the United States. Mendocino County, not being immune to this problem, aims to reduce the number of people with mental illness in local jails. With the support and guidance of the Mendocino County National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mendocino County is hosting its first Community Forum to discuss our local efforts. The Community Forum will be held in two locations:


Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Each day and location will host both an Educational Session from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and a Public Forum from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
