Happiness comes from the little things in life, including the simple act of brushing your teeth.
We all experience emotional ups and downs from time to time caused by events in our lives. Mental health conditions go beyond these emotional reactions and become something longer lasting. With proper treatment, people can realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively and meaningfully contribute to the world. Without mental health we cannot be fully healthy.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated helping Americans affected by mental illness. What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, they work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
