Welcome to the YPAB Team Page. The Young Professionals Advisory Board (YPAB) is a group of young philanthropic New Yorkers dedicated to the work of NAMI-NYC Metro. The YPAB assists NAMI-NYC Metro on special projects throughout the year, all with a common goal: to change the national conversation and reduce stigma surrounding mental illness. This year we have set our fundraising goal at $40,000,which is our largest amount to date, and we know we can get their with your support!
ALL ARE WELCOME TO WALK WITH YPAB, so please JOIN OUR TEAM and walk with us, or support our team by making a donation to a team member listed on our ROSTER.
We have created this fundraising page because NAMI, and the work they do, is very important to us. 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.
Most of us have had our lives touched by mental illness, be it a friend, family member, colleague or personally. NAMI and NAMIWalks raises visibility for this often stigmatized and overlooked cause, and provides funding for NAMI-NYC Metro to expand its vital services. NAMIWalks NYC benefits the NAMI NYC Metro Chapter, which offers no-cost support groups, classes, and education services to over 17,000 family members and individuals each year.
Donating to our team through this page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of the 43.8 million adults who experience mental illness in a given year. No amount is too small, so please consider making a donation if you can.
Thank you for your support.
