Wondering About Those White Ribbons Around Town?

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a 501c (3) nonprofit charity. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to providing support, free education, and advocacy to the 1 in 5 Americans and 1 in 5 children that are affected by mental health issues. NAMI has a state organization in all 50 states. NAMI Mid-Hudson (NAMI-MH) is one of the 1500 affiliates that span the nation.

In honor of May is Mental Health Awareness Month; NAMI NYS and NAMI-MH, along with our 28 other NAMI NYS affiliates, will tie white NAMI ribbons on trees, flag poles, and in areas of high visibility over the entire state of New York. In 2023 NAMI-MH tied over 800 NAMI ribbons from Millerton, NY to Ellenville, NY.
