Local behavior health programs and medical professionals will be there to share resources and support groups available in the community. There will also be fun music, games, and food for the whole family to enjoy. Lots of great raffle prizes to win! Including a rare opportunity to view Bend from high above in the Airlink Helicopter! All money made will stay within Central Oregon, helping families and individuals with mental illness.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of 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, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
NAMI relies on gifts and contributions to support our important work.
