Dear Family and Friends,
Hooray! I survived my first year as Executive Director of NAMI Howard County! Thanks for all of the love and support.
It was a great year and I continue to be so proud to be part of this wonderful organization that works to improve the lives of those living with mental illness and their families by providing education classes, support programs, and advocacy, all free of charge. With one in five adults in the U.S. living with mental illness, odds are excellent that we all know someone who is affected by it.
Once again, Paul, the kids and I are participating in NAMI Walks, the nation's largest and most successful mental health awareness and fundraising event. NAMI Walks Maryland takes place on June 1st at Rash Field in Baltimore. We would love for you to join us! If you are not able to walk with us, we hope you will consider donating to our team.
Last year, I set a goal of $300. I was blown away when I ended up raising just over $2400! (You all made me look like a Rock Star my first year -- thank you!) This year, we decided as a family to set a goal of $3,000. Yes, it's ambitious -- but we are confident that we can get there with YOUR help!
Donations on this page are fast, secure and easy.
Your support means so much to me, to our team, and to the 43.8 million Americans who experience mental illness in a given year. Thanks again for your love and support!
Denise, Paul and the kids
