Sponsor NAMI Gulf Coast’s Mental Health Conference
The background on Mental Illness Awareness Week and Conference:
NAMI Gulf Coast holds a Mental Health Awareness Conference each year in October during Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW). In 1990, the United Stated Congress established the first week in October as Mental Illness Awareness Week in recognition of NAMI’s efforts to raise mental health awareness. Since then, mental health advocates from across the county have joined together during the first full week of October in sponsoring many kinds of activities.
The MIAW Conference has become a NAMI Gulf Coast tradition. It presents the opportunity for us to partner with other individuals and organizations to educate and empower the community. Our hope is that participants will go forth inspired to change attitudes and change lives. Ultimately, through this awareness, education, and advocacy event, we hope to create compassion and understand with regard to mental illness, as with any other illness, and erase the stigma associated with it.
Thank you for supporting the mission of The National Alliance on Mental Illness Gulf Coast through your generous sponsorship of the Mental Health Education Conference, We are Resilient! on October 4, 2019. Your support is deeply appreciated.
A HUGE Thank You to our 2019 NAMIFest Sponsors!
