As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, NAMI plays a key role in SMI Adviser. NAMI’s director of information and support, Teri Brister, PhD, LPC, serves on our Clinical Expert Team. She helps guide our strategy and develop content for individuals, families, and the general public.
SMI has a huge impact on everyone, from individuals all the way up to entire communities and health care systems. NAMI and SMI Adviser work together to promote the use of evidence-based treatments and strategies. Over the coming months, we plan to create webinars, videos, fact sheets, and other content that individuals and families can use to foster recovery.
Each day, people get better from the symptoms of SMI and return to doing things that are important to them.
