I am so excited to announce that I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon and that I am raising money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Massachusetts.
I have always been passionate about mental health awareness and am so grateful for the resources and support that have been available to me throughout my life. My goal is to continue to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and to work to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.
The mission of NAMI Massachusetts is to improve the quality of life both for people with mental illnesses and for their families.
We seek to extend the education, support, and advocacy programs of NAMI Massachusetts so that we will reach out to all Massachusetts consumers and their families; improve the public’s awareness and understanding of mental illnesses; and advocate at all levels to ensure that all persons affected by mental illnesses receive, in a timely fashion, the services that they need and deserve.
