Would you recommend NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL ILLNESS -NEW MEXICO NAMI-NM?

by Danielle S. (October 31, 2015)
I volunteer at NAMI Westside and have been going to the peer connection group for about two months. I love the people and their passion, and I admire their drive to spread awareness. Mental illness is stigmatized in our society and I feel it is important to let folks know that there is help out there. There are people who truly care about mental illness and it's effect on those diagnosed and their family and friends. NAMI rocks!!!!
