i started with NAMI as participant in their support groups and eventually became a volunteer and an afiliate board member. NAMI has helped me to become less judgemental of my own mental illness and also more understanding of others i have since joining NAMI "come out of the closet" and let the whole world know I have a mental illness but I am ok. NAMI makes stigma go away for me and for that I am forever grateful to them. Karrie

Nami has visited mt hospital with their In Our Own Voice presentation and it was absolutely wonderful. Employees from all over the hospital attended to learn more about mental illness to decrease stigma in our institution. Also patients were able to come and see people in recovery and it instilled a lot of hope. I am so grateful for their website as well which also leads me to great information, legislative issues and documentaries. They are the best!

Without NAMI-MN many families would remain confused and frustrated over the problems that they face when a family member is stricken with mental illness. NAMI provides much needed education and support without charge to help families cope and regain their dignity and teaches them how to support their loved ones. Their is hope and help available to all who will reach out. NAMI offers the help and encouragement needed to learn to cope and understand this devasting illness.

NAMI-MN is the premier non-profit I have dealt with over the last 10 years. I wish I had found it sooner. Programs are in place to help consumers AND family members.

I have seen consumers "blossom" and give presentations in the Brainerd Area. It has been great!

NAMI's Family-to-Family course helped us deal with issues relating to our son's Schizo-Affective diagnosis. The exercises and discussions were important in our coming to grips with reality. The support meetings also helped us understand that we were NOT alone and that there was a way thru it all.

Make the F-F easier for the presenter. It gets a bit "bulky" in places.
