Education & Research Initiative

What is the E.R.I.?

NAMI North Carolina Education and Research Initiative supports the NAMI NC community by exploring how mental illness intersects with identity and experience. Research projects will increase support for people living with mental illness and establish NAMI North Carolina’s voice as the leader in mental health education, research, and advocacy in North Carolina.
