At the start of this new year, NAMI NC promoted resolving to take a Pledge to Prioritize Your Mental Health. As an element of this, we encouraged becoming a part of our community as a NAMI member.

In January alone, we had 162 North Carolinians join or renew their membership—connecting them to a network that provides life-saving information, support, and education. One lucky person, “Mary,” also won a self care package worth over $250 in a drawing as part of a January promotion.

Mary, whose 37-year-old son was diagnosed with Bipolar at the age of 14, shared the follow comment about her experience with NAMI:

“NAMI kept our family from falling apart and probably saved our son’s life. We’ll always be grateful”

While everyone’s journey is different, Mary found our community via the affiliate Helpline and then began participating in education classes, meetings, and support groups.

The NAMI family is here for you whatever your individual needs. Our virtual classes and groups can provide you with a connection while maintaining your anonymity and eliminating travel constraints. Our free, confidential Helpline is a quick call (800.451.9682) or text (919.999.6527) away to help you find the resources that you may need.

While it’s February, it’s never to late to take the Pledge and become a part of our community. Click here for more information.
