Help NAMI Connecticut Make A Difference on this Giving Tuesday

On Giving Tuesday, we are aiming high—with a goal to raise $20,000—to expand our online education programs and support groups to reach everyone who needs us, right now, no matter where they are in Connecticut.

This year, because of the increasing demand, we need your support to help us #GiveHope to people experiencing mental health challenges and their loved ones.

An estimated 500,000 people in Connecticut live with a mental health condition. Only 4 in 10 of those people receive the help they need. We want everyone affected by mental health issues, and their loved ones, to know they are not alone.

On Giving Tuesday please support our work to #GiveHope to people affected by mental health challenges. Together, we can build hope, create communities where all people affected in any way by mental health issues get the help and care they need, and where mental health is accepted as an integral part of overall well-being.

Here’s how your donation gives hope:

  • $500 provides crisis intervention trainings and resources for first responders.
  • $300 helps us fight the stigma of mental illness through In Our Own Voice and Ending the Silence presentations.
  • $225 teaches four young adults to facilitate and establish NAMI Connecticut Young Adult Connection Community groups.
  • $100 trains two people in the NAMI Peer-to-Peer recovery education program.
  • $50 helps us continue to run our life-changing support groups and education programs online.
  • $30 teaches one person how to respond to a suicide-related crisis with our Bridging the Gap: An Intro to Suicide Prevention training.
  • $10 provides caring cards with messages of hope for people being discharged from the hospital after a suicide-related crisis.
