"My mental illness began when I was 14 years old. It was a scary time for both me and my family. I didn't know what was happening to me or that what was happening was unusual. Meeting other people with similar issues has helped me better understand and cope with my illness."

The Lives We Impact



Diagnosis: Schizoaffective Disorder

“When my son first told me he was hearing voices I didn't know it could be a sign of mental illness. In fact I thought people were born with the illness. I didn't know it developed later in life. The NAMI Family to Family Education has helped me to better understand my son's illness and the Support Group is a constant source of strength for me and my family."
