Thank you for visiting my personal NAMIWalks page. NAMI, (The National Alliance on Mental Illness) and the work we do is very important to me. One out five Americans is diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lives. That said, we are all impacted in some way by the effects of mental illness.
When mental illness strikes a family, it is devastating and can be a dark and confusing road. When we were directed to NAMI several years into our loved one's illness, it was the lifeline we desperately needed. The free education, resources, and support we received were invaluable and equipped us to support our loved one better; and in turn to work toward better balance for ourselves.
Through NAMI we are blessed to serve others who find themselves on this difficult road. We are passionate about advocating for change to improve access to care, the implementation of parity in mental health treatment, creating awareness, providing education and support in our communities for those who confront mental illness. Serious Mental Illness is a chronic condition, but recovery is possible and does happen.
NAMI is a nonprofit organization. Everything we offer is free of charge and only made possible by gifts and contributions. Please consider helping us continue our work in positively impacting the lives of millions of Americans.
