Each year on the week before Thanksgiving, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) hosts International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day events around the world. It's a day for Loss Survivors to connect with others on their healing journey from losing a loved one, friend and or colleague to suicide. It's a day of reflection, healing and hope.  There were 8 sites hosted in New Hampshire with over 100 in attendance. Deb Baird, Community Educator and Support Specialist from NAMI New Hampshire, attended the event held at New Hampshire Healthy Families in Bedford.

Updated NAMI Family-to-Family Course Format Coming in 2020

NAMI National is currently testing the revised NAMI Family-to-Family program in the states of Arkansas, Florida, Ohio, South Carolina and Texas. The new course is eight sessions long and includes updated research, optional slide decks and the videos released in 2018.
Because NAMI Family-to-Family is an evidence-based program, NAMI National has approached all edits and changes cautiously, seeking input from the researchers who have studied the course, teachers, trainers, graduates and creator Dr. Joyce Burland.
NAMI Family-to-Family Teachers won't need to attend the training again but will need to complete a webinar to teach the revised version of the course. State Trainers will be re-certified after completing a webinar and an online training module.

For questions or more information, please contact NAMI NH's Liz Hodgkins.

SMI Adviser's Webinar On Peer Support
Friday, Dec. 13th, 12-1 PM
Register Online Now

What Will It Cover?
This webinar explores the benefits of peer support in combating loneliness and social exclusion, two factors that destroy health and happiness. Research has shown that the lack of "connectedness" to friends and community worsens psychiatric problems and leads to chronic illness and early mortality. People living with thought disorders, like schizophrenia, have the most difficulties in forming personal relationships of all disabilities. Social inclusion offers opportunities to re-engage with the community and form positive relationships. Mental Health America's Social Self-Directed Care program and work compiled by the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion emphasize the value of peer support in assisting individuals with serious psychiatric disorders form social connections and personal relationships.

Who Will Be Presenting?
Patrick Hendry, Vice President of Peer Advocacy, Supports and Services for Mental Health America. He has worked as an advocate and initiator of peer-run services for 27 years in a variety of leadership roles.

Thanks for a Wonderful Comedy Night!

NAMI New Hampshire was the recent beneficiary of a comedy night at Tupelo Music Hall, hosted and coordinated by Sgt. Steven Callinan of the NH State Police and Christine Ferwerda.  Sgt. Callinan and Christine organized the event as part of a class leadership project, raising both awareness of good mental health and suicide prevention as well as nearly $2,000 for NAMI New Hampshire.  Over 120 attendees enjoyed a night of laughter, silent auctions, and raffles to benefit NAMI New Hampshire.  We are grateful to the NH State Police for their partnership and ongoing support of our mission, and to the many community members who attended the event and helped make it a success.

Make an Impact
Did you know there are a variety of ways you can make a transformational gift to NAMI New Hampshire?
  • Join the NAMI New Hampshire Legacy Circle by including us in your estate planning, giving a lasting gift to help us continue providing support, education, and advocacy well into the future.
  • Consider giving a gift of stock and potentially avoid paying capital gains tax.  Click here to learn more about the tax benefits of donating stock to a charity.  Instructions for transferring a gift of stock to NAMI NH are available here.
  • If you are age 70 1/2 or older, IRS rules require you to take required minimum distributions each year from your tax-deferred retirement accounts.  This additional taxable income may push you into a higher tax bracket, and may also reduce your eligibility for certain tax credits and deductions.  Making a pre-tax charitable donation directly to NAMI NH can eliminate or reduce the impact of this income.
  • Stacking your gift may help you exceed the new standard deduction.  This method of giving allows you to combine several years of charitable contributions in a single year, maximizing your potential tax benefit. 
NAMI New Hampshire was recently honored with a Nonprofit Impact Award from the NH Center for Nonprofits. As the former Executive Director of NAMI NH and a father of a daughter with mental illness, one might think I'm biased when I say that the award was definitely well deserved.  However, it only confirmed our belief that regularly giving to NAMI NH through our retirement program and adding NAMI NH as a beneficiary into our will is the right thing to do.  With our gifts, and those of others, NAMI NH can continue to be good stewards of its resources, putting them to work for individuals and families affected by mental illness and suicide. Giving is an honor, especially when we see that what NAMI NH does works. Yet, they have more to do. Together, our collective resources ensure NH has an accessible, quality mental health and suicide prevention delivery system for Granite Staters.
