NAMI Bucks County envisions a world where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. With help from people like you, a friend and partner, we were able to nearly double the number of participants in our support and education programs, calls to our NAMI HelpLine, and attendees at our awareness events in 2019.
I was so comforted and received so much that all of my friends see a difference. I want to be there to pay it forward to the next person that feels the way I had for 22 years. I am in such a different place emotionally thanks to my great friends and your wonderful organization. — Toni
