Review for NAMI Florida Inc, Tallahassee, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I moved down to Florida in 1996 and needed a connection to help keep my strength with fighting the stigma against my diagnoses of "schizophrenia". I was welcomed into my local NAMI affiliate. I used my passion and energy to be involved in the organization with my mission set to "give back". I founded our "Consumer Council" (which is now deemed the"Peer Council"), I sit on the Board, various committees, mentor Peer-to-Peer classes and never say, "No" to helping someone out in need. The latter, is what NAMI has taught me, what the organization is really all about...

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

have more peer involvement.

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

A lot

How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?


How do you feel you were treated by this organization?

Quite well

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


How did you find this group?

They found me.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

A purpose, a focus, an organization to believe in and rally while having people in my life that I know I can utilize as supports when needed for "whatever" a heart beat.
