NAMI DuPage is requesting support to fully implement its PD Connect Program.  The purpose of the program is to provide police officers with resources to better assist them when they respond to an incident in which mental illness is the primary complaint. PD Connect enables police officers to provide individuals or families affected by mental illness with referral and follow-up services from NAMI DuPage with the goal of reducing police interventions.
