Honoring

Nathan Romano, President & COO, York Capital Management, NAMI-NYC Board President Emeritus

NAMI-NYC Advisory Board - Nathan Romano

“I am a passionate advocate for mental wellness, having grown up with a mother living with bipolar disorder. For the past 15 years I have been involved with the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City (NAMI-NYC), first joining the Board in 2005, becoming co-President in 2015, and serving as President from 2017-2020. It gives me tremendous joy today, as President Emeritus, to see how the organization has grown and continues to meet the ever-changing needs of the community. And now, in light of the pandemic and social unrest we’ve been experiencing since March, NAMI-NYC continues to serve more people than ever with free programs and services that help those living with mental illness AND their family, friends, and other supporters. NAMI-NYC is truly an incredible organization, working hard every day to improve the lives of tens of thousands of New Yorkers each year. I’m pleased to be honored at this year’s Seeds of Hope Gala.”
