Staff from NAMI will present on the fundamentals of mental illness and how to offer support to those experiencing challenges. In addition to the presentations, there will be a lived experience panel made up of individuals who share their stories of living with mental illness and a Sun Prairie Police Officer to teach the community about what it means to be a CIT (Crisis Intervention Trained) officer.
