“NAMI Greater Toledo’s Creative Expressions program helped to bridge the
communication gap with my family. After each project, I text a photo of my
work to [them]. This gives me something to be proud of and gives
my family a way to support and encourage me.” – Jess, Toledo
“As a single mother who is working two jobs to make sure my children
get their needs met, I wasn’t aware that when my son acts out,
he was showing signs of a mental illness. I thought it was rebellion.
Thank goodness NAMI was in existence and someone told me about it.
Without NAMI, I would still be thinking my son was just acting out.”
– Jonni, Toledo
“NAMI is a tremendous resource
for me and my family. It has given me a
tremendous amount of peace of mind
as I navigate this issue with my daughter.”
– Melissa, Maumee
“I live with bipolar disorder and
attention deficit disorder.
NAMI saved my life.
I don’t know what I would
do without them.”
– Cheryl, Perrysburg
