Find Help, Find Hope!


“Nobody covers all the bases like NAMI. The recovery skills learned in the Peer to Peer training and the In Our Own Voice trainings were invaluable to me. NAMI has assisted in my ongoing recovery and I am very grateful!”

John Foti, NAMI IOOV Presenter

“NAMI’s Family-to-Family was the educational journey my parents needed to get them past the tough time I was putting them through. And in 2007 NAMI invited me to a training to become a mentor of their Peer-to-Peer recovery course. I need to emphasize how significantly this opportunity has improved my mental health status.”

Susana Carrillo, NAMI Peer-to-Peer Mentor

“I credit a good part of my success with staying in recovery to the values and education gained through NAMI’s consumer signature programs. NAMI has taught me that I am not alone in my struggle and that it is ok to ask for help among other things.”

Oscar Guzman, NAMI Warmline Coordinator

“I was diagnosed October 2010. I now facilitate a NAMI Connection group in Petaluma and have volunteered at the NAMI office. These activities have become a major part of my recovery from mental illness. I am taking steps to go to the Junior College soon and hope to get a degree in physical therapy over the coming years.”

Edward Reifsnyder, NAMI Connection Facilitator

Comments from a Participant

“I believe in what NAMI stands for – advocacy and support as well as help, hope and healing for all of those seriously challenged with mental illness. Over the past 20 years, I have struggled with mental illness and have come to appreciate the support of an organization such as NAMI. I hope to continue to support NAMI’s endeavors to combat mental illness.”
