The South Dakota Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness(NAMI) will be milling with and educating legislators on the importance of quality mental health programs, Tuesday Feb. 19th. (By that time during the session, legislators may need some mental health help themselves). The Capitol Rotunda will be the location, from 9am to 3pm.

Changes in criminal law this year and the ongoing need for financial and legal support for mental health programs in our state make this effort important to all of us.
