Review for Nami Gulf Coast, Alvin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NAMI Gulf Coast was instrumental in changing the course of my son's life for the better. My son, Matt, was diagnosed with Major Depression, Schizoaffective Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder in 2010. These diagnosis sent my family into a tailspin not knowing where to go or what to do. Sure, we saw doctors and therapists but there was no help for the family. A doctor told me about NAMI and I am so grateful. Through support group meetings, classes, attending conventions NAMI Gulf Coast gave me the tools to navigate through the maze of mental illness. Two years down the road I am still involved and Matt has done volunteer work for NAMI Gulf Coasts thrift shop, Second Chance. They have opened their doors to him and this in turn has given him confidence and the realization that he can have a life again after two years of battling his mental illness. While the road is long and you never know what's around the corner, I do know that NAMI Gulf Coast will be there for my family and we won't have to go through tough times alone ever again.
