Our theme this year was Prevention Recovery Wellness: Hope for the future!

NAMI NJ’s 2019 conference provided valuable information about future planning and empowered families and individuals with lived experience. While no one can predict the future – we can take the fear of the unknown away…through planning for the future!

Special Keynote: Lucy Winer – Kings Park, filmmaker.

Award-winning filmmaker and person of lived experience, Lucy Winer, shared highlights from her critically acclaimed documentary, Kings Park: Stories of an American Mental Institution, and her new project, Unlocked: Stories of Public Mental Healthcare.

Drawing on her years of hospitalization in the late 1960’s through to her current work as a public speaker and film producer, Lucy spoke about her own recovery journey and unique lessons learned.
