Sherri Cloud, CIT Director for NAMI South Carolina states, “I have had several officers tell me that this class has benefited them not only professionally but personally.  They have learned some techniques from the field tips that have helped them. They learned some triggers and what to do and what not to do.  The way that the activities are incorporated very well into the presentation and well received.  NAMI is truly appreciative of the support and commitment that you have given to us and to South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers”
