|Many people wait too long before seeking mental health treatment.
Part of the reason for the delay is that not everyone recognizes the signs of mental illness—it’s time to change that. With your help, NAMI is working to ensure that more people get the help they need early.
You can help more people recognize the signs and get treatment early by helping to expand NAMI’s reach. Your gift today will support all of NAMI’s efforts to help people get the care they need as soon as possible and improve the lives of millions of Americans affected by mental illness every day.
Early intervention is key. One in five American adults experience a mental illness, but only 43% of them accessed care in the last year. One of NAMI’s top priorities is educating as many people as possible to recognize the warning signs of a mental health condition and to promote early intervention.
The need for our work has never been more urgent. Your donation today will help NAMI make it easier for people to get help early through our life-changing programs, including:
· NAMI Ending the Silence (ETS): Offered in schools at no cost, ETS opens a dialogue for students, families and school staff to help them feel more comfortable talking about mental health, while destigmatizing mental illness and promoting early intervention.
· NAMI On Campus: NAMI On Campus clubs are available on 57 university campuses and reach college-age students across the country. The program aims to raise mental health awareness and provide peer-to-peer support in educational settings.
· NAMI Basics OnDemand: A free course for parents and caregivers that provides fundamental information about the signs and symptoms of mental illness, and how to best support a child with a mental health condition.
Please send your gift today to support these initiatives. With your support, we can reach more adolescents and young adults with information and support, expanding mental health education in schools and helping students recognize early signs of mental health conditions.
