NAMI Engage Events


NAMI Delaware offers regionally-based events aimed to address the needs of the community and serve as an opportunity to learn more about important relevant topics. Our “NAMI Engage” and “Brewing Concerns” events are free to attend, brief, and informal in nature. Our goal is to provide as many presentations across the state throughout the year as possible.

As each presentation is different, please review the description and don’t hesitate to reach out to the NAMI Delaware Staff with questions or concerns about the topic or format! We welcome everyone to attend should the topic peak your interest. As seating is limited, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you register and later determine you cannot attend.

Thank you to our volunteer presenters and partner organizations who help make this initiative possible!
