Review for NAMI of DuPage County, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When my daughter was diagnosed with a mental illness, NAMI provided current information quickly. Then, they provided a safe place where I could meet with other parents in a similar situation. There are/were no bailouts or final solutions, just the comfort and support of others who understood and encouraged me to have hope.

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

the comfort level of being with others who understand my situation and offer support instead of judgement

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

accepting, informed, compassionate

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

provide services to more families, and change the attitudes towards mental illness in the USA

Ways to make it better...

I had known about NAMI sooner

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

underfunding

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2007

Role:  Client Served & I asked for information and participated in a parent group.
