Statement from the Board of Directors of NAMI-Tallahassee
NAMI-Tallahassee extends our sympathy to the individuals injured, their families and the students who are affected by the shooting at the FSU library on November 20. Our thoughts also go to the friends and family of Myron May, who lost his life in a horrible way. His death and the impact of his actions on our community motivate us to strengthen the safety nets that could have prevented this tragedy.
