Community Inclusion

NAMI NC announces NEW program proven to help with recovery for those living with mental illness.


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. Recent studies have shown that many people living with mental illness are in need of support to feel included in the community. 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 – like yoga, working out at the gym, playing cards, etc.
