The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the largest advocacy organization in the U.S. for persons with mental illness, family members, friends, and other support people. NAMI raises awareness about the prominence of mental health issues in our society, provides free educational events, organizes support groups, and advocates on behalf of those affected by mental illness. NAMI Austin, which was named national affiliate of the year at the 2013 NAMI Convention, relies on proceeds from the annual NAMI Walk as their sole source of funding. This year’s walk in downtown Austin will include a team of Texas State University walkers organized by students in the St. David’s School of Nursing at Round Rock. Consider joining the Bobcat Nursing team to raise money for NAMI Austin. Proceeds go directly toward funding NAMI’s education, support and advocacy programs in the Greater Austin area.
