Cochran Firm Reports on NAMI
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 01, 2012 ) Dothan, AL Mental illness is a disease with a lot of stigmas attached to it. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) helps people with mental illnesses handle their problems and works to reduce the stigmas attached to the disease through advocacy and education.
Many well-known people have faced mental illnesses and overcame their disabilities to be a major force in society. NAMI likes to promote the story of Winston Churchill, Britains Prime Minister, who was influential in securing a win over Germanys aggressive war machine. Mr. Churchill suffered from depression which some feel enabled him to view European war problems realistically and better understand how to deal with the situation.
NAMI offers numerous support programs all across the country through its 1200 affiliate programs that are designed to help people suffering from mental illness improve their lives. These affiliate programs provide local support and educational resources geared toward individuals. Student led groups are held on college and university campuses focusing on the needs of young men and women.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness also places an emphasis on the mental needs of our soldiers, many of whom are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). As suicide rates climb among our military, NAMI is making a difference by working to educate and provide intervention programs.
More information on NAMI along with a huge amount of helpful information about mental illness diseases and their treatments, may be found on NAMIs website, http://www.nami.org. In addition, addresses and telephone numbers of local affiliates are listed to make contact easier. Working locally, NAMI can help millions of people with mental illness issues.
