Review for NAMI, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NAMI is a GREAT Nonprofit! It is the single, most-comprehensive resource for getting real education, real facts and real help for family members of and/or those suffering with a mental illness. NAMI seeks to deteriorate the stigma associated with mental illness and links you up with others that will walk along side your family to support your loved one's mental journey. You can look up things all day long on the internet but until you get around like-minded and like-experienced individuals, the solutions never come. It is a light at the end of a tunnel to the antiquated viewpoints and funding our country, and especially my state (Texas), has towards mental illness. NAMI is propelling change and giving a voice to the voiceless, DEMANDING our loved ones with a mental health diagnosis are treated as human beings and not as a diagnosis!

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

ask all volunteers/individuals involved to step out in boldness. Call legislators, call judges, support each other and fight the urge to keep their issues private. There is a community called to help one another.
