The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) held their national convention in Washington, D.C., September 3-6. The popular CPNP “Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist” booth received special mention in NAMI’s post-convention video update from Mary Giliberti, NAMI Executive Director.

In the recorded interview (timestamp 2:25-3:25), CPNP member Judy Curtis explains who CPNP is and what neuropsychiatric pharmacists contribute to patient care. CPNP student members Kayla Tegeler and Marcus Ellis, with assistance from Heidi Wehring, PharmD, BCPP, staffed the “Ask the Psychiatric Pharmacist” booth and shared the type of questions they answered at the very popular booth.
