This month we’d like to highlight our partnership with NAMI San Diego!
NAMI is a charitable organization that was established in 1978 by family members of people with mental illness. NAMI San Diego is affiliated with NAMI California and is run by volunteers who provide education, support and advocacy for those who suffer with brain disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, clinical depression and more.
Tri-City is extremely thankful for our partnership with NAMI San Diego. Together we can help build a stronger community by sharing information and striving to end the stigma associated with mental illness.
Tri-City sponsors NAMI’s Peer-to-Peer Program in Oceanside, a FREE educational course for any adults (18+) living with mental illness who are interested in establishing and/or maintaining their wellness and recovery.
Participants take part in a combination of lectures and interactive exercises. The course is guided by two trained mentors and a resource volunteer who are experienced at living well with mental illness. The diversity of experience among the course participants provides a lively dynamic that moves the course along.

Tri-City supports NAMI Walks, an annual event to help raise awareness and funds to support programs and services for our community. A team representing Tri-City Medical Center’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Services, led by Sarah Jayyousi, a vocal advocate for those suffering from behavioral health conditions, participates each year to help support the cause. One in every 5 adults struggles with mental illness and now more than ever it is important to spread awareness and advocate for those in need in our community.
