NAMI has developed a story bank for consumers and families that have been supported in their recovery by access to medications as well as those who have been challenged in their recovery by lack of access to medications. Shared stories shed light on the challenges consumers and families face—putting a human face on the tragedy of failed access. The hope for recovery that access supports is one of the most effective ways NAMI can advocate for our mission.
Please spread the word about this story bank to other consumers, families and advocates. The story bank will be used to support NAMI's advocacy efforts through the Campaign for the Mind of America, and help us secure access to medications and treatment for all people affected by mental illness. You can help us make a difference!
We greatly appreciate the opportunity to review your story. We assure you that the names will remain confidential unless we contact you first for authorization to use your name and story. We need your name and contact information to contact you if we receive a request for family or consumer stories. We may use data in the aggregate, without identifying your name or story, to show the prevalence and magnitude of this problem.
