October has been designated, "Depression and Mental Health Awareness" month. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is dedicated to provide resources and support for individuals and families who have been affected by mental illness. From NAMI-Hawaiʻi:
"NAMI Hawaii Programs are for people whose lives have been affected by mental illness. Through our free programs you’ll meet other families affected by mental illness of their loved ones or people living in recovery from mental illness. We come together, in a safe, confidential, and comfortable setting, to share our struggles, promote hope and build a better tomorrow for our loved ones and for ourselves. NAMI Hawaii is committed to offering community-focused education, support, and advocacy programs for family caregivers and individuals living in recovery from mental illness."
NAMI Hawaiʻi is ending a week-long mental health awareness campaign with their annual "NAMI Walks" Fundraiser. Please click here to register for the walk. See you on Saturday!
