  • NAMI NJ Law Enforcement Education Program

    The NAMI NJ Law Enforcement Education Program is dedicated to ensuring that law enforcement officers and recruits receive mental illness education, and to promoting cooperation and communication between county criminal justice and mental health systems throughout the state.

    Each county affiliate has at least one NAMI liaison who can be called upon to teach a basic class in mental illness awareness for law enforcement. The class can take from one half hour to two hours, depending upon the needs of the audience. The class includes a brief history of the treatment of mental illness, a 12 minute video about its biological nature, a review of symptoms and warning signs, a discussion of the 1989 Psychiatric Emergency Screening Law and its significance for police officers, and an explanation of the DOs and DON'Ts for law enforcement dealing with mental illness crisis situations.
