NAMI is pleased to join the #FirstRespondersFirst initiative to support frontline health care and public safety professionals facing the adverse mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sharing Your Story with Law Enforcement

A NAMI Signature Program

NAMI Sharing Your Story with Law Enforcement (SYSLE) is a presentation
program that trains peers and families to share their stories of mental illness and recovery during law enforcement training, such as Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training.
Officers that hear these stories report greater empathy and understanding, and an increased desire to adapt their response to people experiencing a mental health crisis. NAMI’s goal is to ensure that every law enforcement officer has this opportunity.
