Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI Ohio joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.
This year for Mental Health Month, NAMI Ohio invites you to share what NAMI means to you.
Everyone in the NAMI family has their own story about how NAMI has impacted their lives and we want to know your stories. Maybe you have attended a Family-to-Family or Basics class or you have found support at a group meeting. Maybe you made your voice heard with your legislators on advocacy day or participated in a NAMI event. No matter how you came to know NAMI, we are happy you are here.
To participate, upload a video to social media using the hastags #MyNAMI and #NAMIOhio. Remember to tag us @NAMIOhio. Or you can send us an email or direct message with what NAMI means to you.
We will be sharing these stories on our social media and NAMI Ohio blog throughout Mental Health Month.
Please share with your post with your friends and communities and help people learn more about all of the great things happening throughout Ohio with NAMI and stay tuned to our social media channels throughout the month of May for more information.
