Hope Starts With You PSA | NAMI

Hope Starts With You

NAMI’s “Hope Starts With You” PSA series features the stories of two different individuals who are in need of mental health support much like 1 in 5 Americans.

Our films show the profound impact that one individual can have if they simply reach out to help another through NAMI.

Every time you give your time, money, energy, support or share your story you are positively intervening in the life of someone who needs you. You become a leader, the drop that creates a ripple effect that we like to call The NAMI Effect.

Watch “Brighter Day” and “Peace and Quiet” below to learn about ways that you can spread hope to the millions of people affected by mental illness each and every day.

If you are a NAMI State Organization or Affiliate, learn more about how to air the PSA locally.
