NAMI Monroe County walked in support of mental illness advocacy and stigma elimination during Mental Illness Awareness Week while partnering with NAMI Dane County. We are raising funds in hopes to implement more opportunities in Monroe County (and surrounding areas) and, so far, we’re doing pretty well. At the Walk event, NAMI Monroe won 1st place in the Team T-Shirt contest and, therefore, our team t-shirt is going in to the National competition.
We are the NAMI Monroe County “Stigma Zappers” and we all had a great time. Thank you to all of our generous supporters! Mental illness affects us all… whether or not we know it. It’s time to step up and raise awareness, provide advocacy, and eliminate stigma!
Please visit us on the web at www.namimonroecounty.org and on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MonroeCountyNAMI. We have a plethora of support, but are always aiming to provide more! A special shout out goes to NewShop Design for turning our t-shirt ideas into something special.
