National Alliance on Mental Illness: Ways to give back.



At a special Congressional hearing this week, NAMI spoke on behalf of individuals and families affected by mental illness.

Through their stories, NAMI Executive Director Mike Fitzpatrick and three other families spoke to the need for Congressional action on early identification and early intervention, improved access to treatment and a commitment to families in need.

Commenting on a post about the hearing on NAMI’s Facebook page, NAMI supporter Rosie de Joy shared, “I watched [the hearing] on C-Span…very moving. Congress must start listening. Change needs to start NOW!”

If you have ever experienced a mental illness, been diagnosed or you know a friend or family member managing a mental health diagnosis, please visit Educate yourself, reach out to others and please consider making a donation to the organization. 

There are so many ways to help.
