Victory in Stigma Fighting!

Thanks to the great work of NAMI Burlington County’s fierce advocates! The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Burlington proclaim October 7 through October 13, 2018 as Mental Health Awareness Week, to shine a light on mental illness and fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. See the proclamation.

 

NAMI Burlington County was invited to participate in the Seneca High School Corn Maze that was arranged by the students of the Psychology Club on Wednesday evening October 24th, 2018.  The chilly activity was enjoyed by the students and, while there, they learned about mental health and the role that NAMI can have in managing mental illness.
