NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties is a local Colorado affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and a true partner to AllHealth Network. Their mission is to provide education, support, and advocacy for people whose lives are impacted by mental illness. They help families and individuals with their mental health goals including support and recovery.
NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties provides support for AllHealth Network clients in many ways, including consistently scheduled Family and Connection Recovery support groups at various AllHealth Network locations. Connection Recovery Support Group is a free, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness.
In addition to support groups, NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties generously provides philanthropic support for AllHealth Network’s Center Point day program for adults in many ways. They donate 50% of what AllHealth Network’s Super Stars Team raises for the annual NAMI walk right back to Center Point. In November, they donate funds that help provide a delicious Thanksgiving meal for clients, and in December they support a holiday celebration that enables the program to purchase holiday gifts for clients who might otherwise not receive them.
“AllHealth Network is fortunate and grateful to have such a thriving NAMI group with whom to partner. Their generosity throughout the year contributes to Center Point’s programming. The family-to-family group and family support groups are great resources for the families we work with, specifically to support those who feel isolated and hopeless when their loved ones are not wanting to engage in their mental health treatment. Thank you to NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties for all you do to support our programs and to offer support to the community.” Amy Staley, clinical manager, LCSW.
AllHealth Network is looking forward to increasing this partnership in 2017. NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties’ Board President, Jason Hopcus, will be working with AllHealth network peer specialists to train them in providing Connection Recovery Support Groups, which can then be integrated into Center Point programming.
