Dear RIOTA Members,

"NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community for hope for all of those in need. NAMI is the foundation for hundreds of NAMI State Organizations, NAMI Affiliates and volunteer leaders who work in local communities across the country to raise awareness and provide essential and free education, advocacy and support group programs." (http://www.nami.org/)
 
The goal of the NAMIWalks program is to raise awareness as well as funds to support its efforts. "Through NAMIWalks' public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing how Americans view persons with a mental illness. This is leading to ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need. Please join us as we improve lives and our communities one step at a time."
 
RIOTA will be walking as a team again next fall, and we would like to ask for your participation in this event!  If you would like further information about NAMI, or NAMIWalks, please visit http://www.nami.org/
 
The walk is a great event, and your family and friends are welcome to join our team as well!
