1 in 5 people are affected by a mental illness each year. It needs to be okay to ask for help.
Everyday NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness) touches the lives of Minnesotans who feel alone as they navigate their own mental illnesses or those of their loved ones. We believe that no one should have to travel this journey alone. NAMI Minnesota knows first-hand that there is hope when we share the road with others.
In 2017, 100% of Give to the Max Day gifts to NAMI Minnesota will support our Capital Campaign to to move to a larger office space fully accessible by transit and to update our technology in order reach out to more people living with mental illnesses and their families. Donors who give $1000 or more to our Capital Campaign will be honored with an engraved leaf as part of our Tree of Hope display in our new office.
We’re pleased that a generous anonymous donor has come forward to do a 1:1 match up to $15,000. That means for every dollar raised, they will match it dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000! You can double the impact of your gift when you contribute to NAMI Minnesota.
Donors like you change attitudes. Misunderstanding and myths are primary barriers to understanding mental illnesses. NAMI Minnesota's educational approach and public dialogues help debunk the myths and change public attitudes. With your help, we set the stage for individuals and loved ones to share their stories in their communities, in their workplaces and legislators. The power of these stories helps us achieve our goal to change attitudes and increase compassion and understanding.
Donors like you change the mental health system. To effect systemic change, individuals and families must feel a deeply rooted sense of belonging to a movement. Your support builds this movement. NAMI Minnesota's educational classes and support groups help to strengthen individuals and families, and our partnerships with professionals and providers build cohesion and strength. NAMI Minnesota brings everyone together to build a better mental health system, and we couldn't do it without you.
