National Alliance on Mental Illness – CS

What:

NAMI-CS educates, advocates for and supports the mentally ill and their loved ones in the Pikes Peak region. We provide free classes, support groups and education programs for people living with a mental-health condition, in addition to family members, educators, health-care providers, law enforcement and the courts. NAMI-CS works to change lifelong outcomes by focusing on early education, identification and prevention.

Why:

We provide help and hope to individuals and families facing mental illness. Our classes, support groups and outreach programs are always free, and they change lives. People in crisis can call NAMI for help navigating the local mental health care system and identifying the right resources. We can also help with the school, hospital and court systems.

Needs:

Exterior paint job for office, and a large conference room table.
