Community Inclusion

Community Inclusion is a means to ensure that everyone feels respected and included¬†in their community, regardless of their abilities, disabilities, or health care needs. NAMI NC’s Community Inclusion (CI) Program focuses on how individuals with mental illness can find natural supports and things to do with others in their community, just like everyone else!

NAMI NC is holds periodic free virtual training to teach YOU how to become a Community Inclusion Champion! You will learn what Community Inclusion is, how to start a Community Inclusion project in your area, and how to develop a grant application for funding CI in your local area!
NAMI NC Affiliates that send two of their members to the CI training will be eligible to apply for a grant of up to $4,000 to create a Community Inclusion project in their area!
To apply for the training, please fill out the Community Inclusion Program Leader Application and Agreement and send to and copy your NAMI Affiliate President on the email. You can also email Mikayla at for more information.


Thanks to the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion for their resources and support for this program!
