NAMI’s Statement on Violent Attack on the Nation’s Capitol

NAMI’s Statement on Violent Attack on the Nation’s Capitol

Jan 06 2021

Arlington, VA — The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) today released the following statement from CEO Daniel H. Gillison Jr., regarding the violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol building:

“The images of mobs storming the seat of our nation’s government are deeply troubling, scary and may negatively impact the mental health of many Americans from all backgrounds. An attack on our democracy affects us all, no matter our political views. We call upon an end to the violence on Capitol Hill.

“As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, we offer our resources to help the nation heal. We continue to strive to deliver help and hope to all who need it. We are deeply saddened by this traumatic event. You are not alone.”

If you need to talk to someone, please text “NAMI” to 741-741.
