NAMI members, CEO Mary Giliberti discusses the many successes

In a video message to NAMI members, CEO Mary Giliberti discusses the many successes over the past year, including the increase in NAMI brand awareness, significant legislative wins, new support programs and services, and research.

Giliberti attributes the increase in brand awareness to the growing number of celebrity ambassadors who have supported the cause and several high-profile partnerships including companies like Lord & Taylor,  Boeing, Michelin, Showtime and IHeart Radio.

Giliberti also outlines the work NAMI has done to advocate for better mental health coverage through Medicaid, her involvement with the Interdepartmental Serious Mental Illness Coordinating Committee, and increased calls for more research in collaboration with universities, pharmaceutical companies and government agencies that guide these efforts.

“Our message on research is this — if we can have a moon shot to cure cancer, then why not a Mars Shot to find new answers for mental illness!” said Giliberti.  “We won’t stop until this vision becomes a reality,”

Starting this Fall, the Quin Curtis Center in Morgantown, WV will be offering a new psychoeducational group. The ELEVATE program is evidence based and was developed for the purpose of enhancing intimate relationships.

Couples will participate in four classes that will teach them how to improve these aspects of their relationship. Instruction will include interactive activities, discussions, and educational videos. The ELEVATE program is scheduled to start Friday, October 13th from 10:30-12:30, in the Mountain Lair on WVU’s Downtown Campus in the Blackwater Room.
