Find Help, Find Hope!

NAMI’s “I Care” Signature Campaign

HELPING NAMI FIGHT STIGMA

Stigma surrounding mental illness keeps people from getting treatment that fosters hope and leads to recovery. Thank you all for helping the
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Northern Illinois fight stigma.

“We care about someone who lives with a mental illness.
Chances are, you do, too.
One in five Americans will experience a mental illness in

his or her lifetime. That’s a lot of us!
Together we can fight the stigma that too often
keeps people from getting help.
Let’s stand up for the people we care about!”
