Meet the NAMI Runs NYC team!

We asked the team, “Why does raising awareness about mental illness matter to you?”

“My brother has a brain disorder and has struggled with serious mental illness for much of his life. He started having seizures when he was a teenager and then experienced a lot of complications around his illness. For years I’ve watched him and my mom heroically fight for the care that he needs. The time that passed while they were seeking appropriate care, as well as time spent in inappropriate treatment settings, caused more complications. When I think about the obstacles to getting care for so many people living with mental illness, I get very angry. We need to make sure everyone has access to the care that they need, but policies are not going to change until attitudes change.”
