NAMI Preso

This is a presentation I did for the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) last spring. DISCLAIMER: This was not designed to be a stand alone presentation. Also, the presentation is much better in person, but I don't yet know how to upload the interactive version :( For more information about NAMI please visit http://www.nami.org/
