Members of NAMI Montgomery, Fulton, Hamilton are Preparing for the Ribbon Campaign. Are You?

As May and Mental Health Awareness Month are fast approaching, NAMI-NYS affiliates in communities across the state are preparing to tell their neighbors that NAMI is a place to find help and find hope through our annual ribbon campaign.

Last week, members of NAMI of Fulton, Montgomery and Hamilton Counties got together to make bowed ribbons to display.

Last week, NAMI-NYS Community Education and Outreach Manager Tina Lee did a Suicide Safety for Teachers presentation at The New York State Council on Adolescent Pregnancy, Inc. (NYSCAP) Conference, at the Desmond Hotel.

NYSCAP has provided leadership in teen pregnancy since its inception in 1985. The conference focused on promoting healthy adolescent development and well-being, reducing the incidents of adolescent pregnancy and increase the capacity of pregnant and/ or parenting youth to become productive members of society. Above Tina is pictured with Alicia Beekman, MAEd, Director of Youth Services, Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network.

Also last week, NAMI-NYS's Tina Lee and Information and Resource Helpline Coordinator, Christine Rickeman, presented to the PROS program at Unity House in Troy. Tina and Christine presented to both staff and clients. NAMI-NYS is working with Unity House to start a Peer-to-Peer class there and Unity House will also be having a NAMIWalks NYS team.
