"The biggest reason to get involved is self-discovery and recovery. The more a person gets involved with mental health awareness, the more that person finds out about himself through introspection and volunteer efforts. If you’re looking for a way to improve your mental health, the best thing you can do is get involved with an organization like NAMI SF."

"NAMI SF was the support I needed to get me back on mental and physical track and because of their support, my story no longer controls me, I control it.  They helped me to love myself deliberately, thank you NAMI SF!"



"NAMI SF has provided me with a group of peers, and friends that relate to my experience. It has allowed me not only to help others in the community, but in the process help me heal. Speaking to students in classrooms about lived experiences has made a dramatic impact on my life."
