Review for NAMI Florida Inc, Tallahassee, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NAMI saved my son and led me into an understanding of his illness. My first experience with NAMi was at the direction of my son's mental health doctor. WHen I checked out thw web site I was directed to a contact person in my area who turned out to be an angel. I became involved with Nami first as a Mother, attending support meetings, now I am a Family to Family teacher, & a certified Guaridian Advocate. Withthe guidence of NAMI & support I have been able to help my son and get him the services he needed as well as keep him out of the hospital and on the road to recovery. I am also a NAMI Board Member for the local NAMI Chapter. This is a much needed support serivce and teaching provider for our state and done at the community level.
