    What is NAMIWalks Your Way?

    Health concerns over exposure to COVID-19 have led NAMI to recommend that NAMI State Offices not hold their traditional, centralized 5k NAMIWalks this year. NAMI Georgia is following this recommendation, cancelling its three large, in-person events (NAMIWalks Georgia, in Atlanta; NAMIWalks Southwest Georgia, in Albany; and NAMIWalks North Georgia, in Gainesville).
    But we still need to raise money, right?

    Yes! While NAMIWalks provides a portion of the state office budget,

    Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, a person’s culture and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 2008 to start changing this reality. This guide is intended to help NAMI State Organizations (NSO) and NAMI Affiliates (NA) coordinate their National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month public awareness efforts with the national office for greater impact.

    For surviving family members, suicide trauma is devastating.  I have been personally touched by the suicide of a good friend.  I just finished watching a webinar hosted by NAMI Georgia about QPR from the QPR Institute.   QPR stands for Question – Persuade – Refer.  QPR is an abbreviation much like CPR.  Like CPR, you don’t have to be a doctor or mental health professional to save someone’s life.  The webinar covers the following areas:

    • Signs that someone is suicidal (can be subtle)
    • The right questions to ask a suicidal person
    • The wrong questions to ask
    • How to listen to their stories of pain
    • A way to dispense hope
    • How to get help

    This is not to train you as a professional but rather to administer first aid much like you would do with CPR.
