Please consider NAMI Fresno this #GivingTuesday and support our work to reduce stigma, raise awareness for mental illness and educate our community about the important of mental health. We advocate for increased resources, removal of the barriers to care, and a improved system of care for people living with mental health challenges and serious mental illness.
Your generous support for NAMI Fresno will allow us to continue providing support and education for our community. We are available to answer help line calls and emails, and visits in the office, when a family is in need of information to help their loved one who may be in a mental health crisis. Often families are not sure of the process, the system of care, how to contact help, who to contact, or where to go to engage services for the first time. We able to give them and empathetic ear, provide explanations, guide them with next steps, and remind them that recovery is possible. All of this restores hope that is often lost while on this journey when there is no support.
We are also able to provide mental health presentations to our youth and general community members with NAMI Ending the Silence or other mental health presentations.
Thank you for generous support for our mission: to give hope and improve the quality of life for all people affected by mental illness.
