NAMI Lexington has many projects underway in the community. From getting people together to decriminalize mental illness to making sure people with illness know they aren't alone, NAMI Lexington is stretching the spectrum of advocacy, education, family support, and peer support in ways no other organization has before. I truly believe they do the best they can with the least amount of funding. Donations to this organization go directly to participants in their many programs, to materials for those programs, or to fuel innovative initiatives. They literally save lives every day; they're not just saving the lives of individuals with mental illness, but also those of family members, church family members, and community members.

I came to NAMI Lexington in 1989 (then Bluegrass Alliance for the Mentally Il) with my widowed mother for support and education regarding my brother's diagnosis of manic-depression which had been made 20 years before. It was the first time we had been among others who understood the depth of our frustration and grief. It was a small group but it was a beginning for us to learn how to support my brother and take care of ourselves.

It has been a long but successful road for personal healing. I have had the opportunity to experience the dynamic growth of a small local NAMI support group to become a large compassionate and efficient organization offering more opportunities for support, education and advocacy than I ever imagined. I have spent the last 22 years being blessed by NAMI Lexington to have been a family member, consumer, officer, board member, advocate and volunteer.

The personally difficult years are now behind me but I continue to witness and share in the joy of so many people whose needs are being met by NAMI Lexington.

I am so proud to be a part of such a successful non-profit orgaizatiion. NAMI Lexington is an outstanding model for what a non-profit should be.

NAMI Lexington does a fabulous job in educating rhe community, advocating for better treatment and reducing the stigma and fear surrounding mental illness in our community. The organization includes many creative, energetic and postive people who provide inspiration and insight into the many difficult challenges presented by mental illness.
