What do you wish more people knew about NAMI?
I would like people to know that we are folks who know what they are going through, since we have gone through it ourselves. Many of us here at NAMI help others through their mental health challenges because at some point, someone helped us.
Who inspires you?
My father. His love for his profession and integrity inspire me. From him, I learned that we are meant to use whatever talents we have to help others.
