A note from the president:
I'm an advocate for the mentally ill because I LOVE NAMI and the opportunities this organization provides for me to serve others. I love righting wrongs. I love helping people find their own passion and compassion, and I love engaging with folks who are here to make this world a better place! I take my role as president of NAMI-GBA very seriously and it is my intention to work with you to develop an affiliate that is both inclusive and dynamic. Together, we are the voice on mental illness and we grow stronger with every voice that joins our chorus.
I advocate for the mentally ill because I know mental illness can happen to anyone at anytime, and I don't want my nieces to endure the agony that my brother has had to endure. My personal motto to the treatment community is "Nothing about us, without us!" Bloomington is a fabulous place filled with fabulous people. Please join us today!
