Testimonials from NAMI KDK Participants
"During a time when I felt hopeless, alone and lost I was told to try NAMI support groups.
I didn't know anyone in my family or friends that had a mental health condition that I could talk to. NAMI Connections Support Groups opened up a whole new world of hope, understanding and empathy. I was amazed at how fast I could relate to individuals I didn't even know and soon found that it was a wonderful way to get support and answers when no one else could provide them for me. NAMI educated me on my bipolar disorder; how to cope and manage my highs & lows. It's wonderful making connections with individuals who have similar experiences that I've had. NAMI has become like a second home to me, where I feel comfortable and can be myself without hiding anything. Every connections group session is so unique because you never know who will attend or what they will have to say. I've learned to accept my mental health condition and turn my back to the stigma. NAMI helped show me the way and I'm forever grateful."
