I am participating in NAMIWalks Your Way because our family has 2 sons with mental illness - both have been in jail in the past. I know that the prison system has a huge population of people with mental illness who rarely get appropriate care. Many end up isolated, abused, or commit suicide like our son did. Now with COVID-19 stay at home measures many people with and without mental illness are suffering from depression and loneliness. We need Mental Health for All -- this year more than ever!
We are a team for the Idaho state affiliate that advocates for fairness on issues related to mental health in the Idaho Legislature. They also present an annual conference to raise awareness and educate people about mental health. We need Mental Health for All-- this difficult year more than ever.
