The week of October 4-10 is Mental Illness Awareness Week.
What does that mean?
Not keeping our mouths shut. 🙂
This is a time for fighting stigma with every weapon we have. Information is the most potent. Write a letter to the editor, give a friend a pamphlet, read a book, visit JAK’s Place more often. There is a lot of good info at the NAMI national website.
It is also a time for listening.
Here are four promotional “sound bites” that we are encouraging our local radio stations to air during MIAW. In each one, a NAMI member shares her experiences with NAMI. The files are in MP3 format.
