I'm walking for those who deal with mental illness. I'm walking for people you and I know.
One in five people in America experiences major mental illness so it's very likely that you know someone whose life has been affected by it. I certainly do. Maybe it's a family member, maybe it's a friend, maybe it's you. Mental illness affects not only the person with the illness but also their loved ones.
This is where NAMI comes in. The National Alliance on Mental Illness supports those affected, it educates, it advocates. It is an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
NAMI Rensselaer County not only helped me find resources to assist my loved one, it provided and continues to provide support and education for me.
I now volunteer to teach a free 12-week educational class for families affected by mental illness; I'm a facilitator for a support group; I'm treasurer for NAMI Rensselaer County.
I'll be walking in our third local NAMIWalks on September 29, 2018 to raise awareness and raise funds to help support our local NAMI affiliate, NAMI NY and NAMI(national).
Please consider a donation. Every penny helps.
Donating to NAMI through my page is easy, fast and secure. Your donation will make a difference and help people and families affected by mental illness right here in our region. Thank you for your support!
Please come join my team, Squirt's Squad, for our 2nd annual NAMIWalks event! We are walking to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for the important work of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
My name is Lindsey aka "Squirt." I have struggled with a couple of Mental Health Illnesses since I was around 4 years old. With the consistent support and advocacy from my parents and those closest to me, I have finally received the correct diagnoses.
Although I continue to struggle every day, I continue to get through my day by "Just Keep Swimming." Please come and "swim", I really mean walk, with me on September 29th to support my swim through life. If you can join us, please let us know so we can make sure you have a team shirt. My mom's (Julie) email is email@example.com or text/call her at 337-6252.
Please JOIN MY TEAM and walk with me or SUPPORT ME by making a donation to one of my team members. All funds raised directly support the mission of NAMI. Donations can be made to my page directly at https://www.namiwalks.org/team/23625
Your participation and support mean a lot to me and my team!
Thank you everyone, Lindsey
