My husband and I have a 22 year old son who was diagnozed with bipolar disorder at the age of 10, and schizophrenia last year. Why we waited until now to take the NAMI Family-to-Family class I'll never know, but it was incredibly valuable. Both to us in understanding our son's illness, but also as a support for the others in the group who we have bonded with. This program and the others they offer are amazing!!!

Prior to joining the Board I found the organization when my older brother was struggling with a mental illness. Doctors diagnosed and rediagnosed my brother with various illnesses. In the meantime my brother was complying with his doctors orders of taking medication. Unfortunately this came to an end and his condition worsened. Luckily NAMI-MC offered free classes for family members to learn more about to help those with mental illnesses. At times my brother would reach out for help and other times he did not which generally led to trouble for him. If I had not taken the free NAMI-MC educational classes I would not have known how to help my brother. Now this is my chance to be part of a fantastic organization.

NAMI helps families and individuals coping with mental illness. The staff is dedicated and hardworking. My family benefited greatly from the Family-to-Family class and the support groups.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting other family members and the volunteers who run the programs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, knowledgeable, and very helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really make a difference in the lives of "consumers" and families in Montgomery County.

Ways to make it better...

some of the materials were updated, but I understand that the National organization has to provide those updates.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Family-to-Family is worth taking.
