NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Ohio invites area residents to visit the NAMImobile at the Troy Daily News on June 2, 2014 from Noon to 1:00PM as part of the 2014 statewide mental illness anti-discrimination press tour.
Over the summer the NAMImobile is planning to visit communities throughout the state. For this tour NAMI Ohio is sending its 31-ft NAMImobile RV to local newspaper offices to gain attention and work with local boards and NAMI affiliates to start a community conversation. A goal of the tour is to help dispel the myths about mental illness while highlighting the services available locally.
The purpose of the tour is to end discrimination against individuals living with mental illness and their family members by getting the facts about mental illness out to the public. Discrimination is a major barrier to people seeking help for their mental illness when they need it. Lack of treatment can result in hospitalization, loss of employment, court involvement, homelessness or worse, death.
