My son suffers from schizoaffective disorder . The personal struggles and stigma my son and our family had to face was overwhelming until I found NAMIGO . The support , educational classes and acceptance I found thru this organization was life changing . Families and loved ones stricken with mental illness gain information, insight, understanding and empowerment .

My son had a mental breakdown 8 years ago. It was so devastating and my son's doctor told me to contact NAMI. I waited 1 year to take the Family to Family Class. I remember driving to the class for 12 weeks and feeling a sigh of relief each and every time I attended the class and when i left the class.It was the only place I felt understood and the only place I felt like I was given accurate information regarding my son's diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. I believe that the Family to Family class was my therapy, my life-saving device, and at the time, almost my God. It was the only thing that got me thru the terrible time of adjusting to my son's illness. Since that time, NAMI is a large part of my life and my son's. We attend support groups and events. Please continue to support the educational classes that this life changing event for many, many families that would otherwise be lost in the mental illness of their loved ones. I have taught these classes for 7 years, this is the way I am the vloice for my son- who has really lost his.
