The National Alliance on Mental Illness is holding two focus groups which will gather information from you, our NAMI friends, about your experiences with police and courts to help improve their policies and practices. Your stories may also be used in training sessions.

Focus groups are group interviews facilitated by an interviewer. People answer a few, open-ended questions and share experiences. In a focus group everyone is given an opportunity to speak, listen and comment. In a focus group there are no right or wrong answers.

This is an opportunity for you to share experiences with each other and learn from your peers. This is not the place where the staff of police, court or mental health agencies will be present to explain their policies.

The focus groups are confidential and do not cost participants.

If you have experiences with police or courts, please register for one of the focus groups. Your knowledge can make things better.
