Welcome to my personal NAMIWalks fundraising page. I am walking with NAMI because the work they do is very important to me. NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans impacted by mental illness. I have been a Family to Family teacher each year since 1996 and I train NAMI members to teach this amazing educational class. Families are not alone.They are relieved of their guilt and shame that they caused the brain illness. Brain illnesses are multi-factorial and they caused by many different things. They are caused by our genetics, by early childhood environmental trauma, and most commonly by every day street drugs of cocaine, crystal meth and marijuana. It takes many different hits for a mental illness to develop. In our fast based technological culture it is hard to pay attention to all the variables in raising a child or helping a relative. NAMI helps families understand and sets the guidelines for recovery.
Donating to NAMI through my page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference and help people and families affected by mental illness right here in our region. Thank you for your caring!
