I am Vera Ramos. I need to speak out.
Our love and dedication, knowledge and determination as parents will make the difference in the lives of the mentally ill. I have 2 sons diagnosed with schizophrenia and thanks to NAMI helping me, my sons have a stable life. They live with me and I dedicate my life to helping them. They would be dead or in jail if it was not for my intervention. I urge every family to help their loved ones with mental illness. This is the only way to help stop the horrible tragedies like Newtown and many others in our Country! Thank you. Vera.
