Exhibit spaces for the 2014 NAMI National Convention are SOLD OUT.

NAMI invites you to exhibit at our 2014 National Convention, scheduled for September 3 - 6 at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC.

The NAMI National Convention is the annual gathering of some 2,000 mental health activists and advocates from all over the U.S. and several foreign countries. Our attendees include:

  • Individuals who are living with a mental illness
  • Family members and supporters of individuals living with mental illness
  • Health and social policymakers from both the public and private sectors
  • Treatment professionals--including psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed counselors, nurses, and social workers. (CEUs are available for nurses, social workers, and licensed counselors.)

All our attendees have one overarching reason for attending the NAMI National Convention: improving the lives of people who live with mental illnesses and the lives of the people who love and care for them. Our attendees are responsible for securing or recommending mental health services, products, and information for themselves, loved ones, clients, and patients diagnosed with serious mental illnesses. They are eager for the latest information, treatment options, coping strategies, support services, health and wellness information and activities, and legal and financial advice.
