NAMI Washtenaw is looking for volunteers for the Mental Health Treatment Court, which meets on Wednesdays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. This involves attending court sessions at the downtown courthouse and sharing information about NAMI with court participants and the significant others who accompany them. If you’d like to help, contact Pat Doyle at volunteers@namiwc.org.

Citizens for Mental Health & Public Safety has launched a website to advocate for mental health and public safety in Washtenaw County. The new website calls for all funds obtained through the County Mental Health and Public Safety Millage passed in November 2017 to be spent on mental health and public safety services (rather than on climate change actions). For more information or to help with the website, follow this link.
