I’d like to become more involved with NAMI and advocacy.” • “I’ve really learned how to cope with my triggers better, and I’m now on the path to truly loving myself.” • “NAMI Peer-to-Peer gave me hope when I was close to giving up. I realized that things can and do get better and that my mental health condition doesn’t define me. I learned how to speak up for myself, build a strong support network and make plans for my future. I felt welcome and like I was among friends. Most importantly, I felt heard and understood.” • “I’ve learned how to communicate with my parents about what’s going on with me.” • “It was really nice being with people who understood.”
