Hi, I'm Rebecca! Welcome to my fundraising page. , I am so excited to be running the NYC Half Marathon for Team NAMI-NYC :)
As an individual living with Anxiety , Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder, I have made it my mission to spread awareness on Mental Health in hopes of smashing the stigmas surrounding Mental Illness. My Illness does not define me. I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend and advocate. I Advocate for those who have not yet found their voice and I will continue to do so until there is no more shame associated with this disease.
Please consider supporting my mission as well as all of the incredible services NAMI -NYC offers for those living with Mental Illness as well as loved ones supporting those who are struggling.
I promise to make you proud!
Here is some addiontal information on NAMI-NYC:
NAMI-NYC helps families and individuals affected by mental illness build better lives through education, support, and advocacy. As a mental health leader in New York City, NAMI-NYC provides the most comprehensive family and peer support system. Our core programs are nationally recognized, evidence based programs.
Since 1979, NAMI-NYC has provided support to a vastly under-served population of families and individuals who live with mental illness.
Our Helpline, peer-led support groups, and educational courses allow families and individuals to share their struggles, and talk about symptoms, treatments, community resources, and strategies for coping.
All groups and classes are facilitated by trained peer volunteers - we have "been there," where you are, and we understand what you're going through.
Your donations help NAMI-NYC provide education, support, and advocacy to over 19,000 New Yorkers yearly, all free-of-charge to anyone who needs them. With your support, we will continue to expand our services to reach more New Yorkers every year.
