Review for NAMI Florida Inc, Tallahassee, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

NAMI has been an unbelievable help to me as a care giver for a mentally ill person. I found comfort, expertise, information and fellowship in attending the support meetings and the Family-to-Family 12 week class. NAMI is there for the families and the disabled. The mental health profession and professionals are very impersonal and bound by way too many laws to be really helpful to people in crisis. Sharing a personal trauma, such as mental illness, with others who can understand and relate is extremely valuable. It is vital to be able to speak out on the day to day turmoil that this illness causes to the disabled one as well as those that surround them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

dealing with my loved one who is struggling with mental health issues

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure there was a NAMI representative available at all Inpatient Facilties
