Stigma Busters

Our team, the NAMI Cobb Stigma Busters is participating in the 2017 NAMIWalks Georgia event and I hope you will come walk with us and others from around the state of Georgia.  As family members, peers, emergency responders and those in healthcare we walk together in numbers to help raise awareness.

 

NAMI Cobb has committed to raise funds to help NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) provide more services for people living with mental health challenges. Our team fundraising goal is $11,000. With your help, I know that we can reach this goal! Your support and these dollars will impact Cobb County and the surrounding areas we serve.

 

NAMIWalks is the largest and most successful mental health fundraising and awareness event in America! Through NAMIWalks' public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing how Americans view individuals with a mental illness and ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need.

 

 

The mission at NAMI Cobb is to...
  • provide education programs, support and advocacy for individuals living with a mental health condition, their families, caregivers, friends, first responders and schools, serving the local communities in Cobb, Cherokee, Douglas, Bartow and Paulding counties.
  • act as a voice in our community for access to affordable housing, affordable health care, quality treatment and support services for individuals living with mental health conditions; such basic services are essential for recovery, improving wellness and quality of life for everyone.
  • support and aid mental health research; raise public and legislative awareness of mental health challenges; and champion a community of hope and support for all individuals adversely impacted by mental illness.
