Off the Mask Meet and Greet
Dear NAMI-NYS Ambassador and Models,
Thank you for your dedication to catwalk as a model and raise $2,500 for our Off The Mask Fashion Show and Art Exhibit to benefit The National Alliance on Mental Illness New York State (NAMI-NYS) on Friday, May 10, 2019 from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Hearst Media Center, 645 Albany Shaker Road, Albany NY.
Every year, regardless of race, age, religion, or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least 1 in 4 Adults and 1 in 5 children across the United States. Unfortunately, stigma prevents people from understanding mental illness and is still the leading cause to why people fail to seek help. But the more we talk about the importance of mental health and wellness, we can end the silence, change attitudes, and save lives.
Over 300 prominent business, civic, and community leaders will gather at the benefit to celebrate our collaborative efforts and showcase the strength, heart, and soul of our organization. Your efforts will help redefine the narrative surrounding mental health, increase our outreach in schools and in our communities and provide support for our Free education programs that help families and individuals impacted by mental health conditions lead better lives.
NAMI-NYS is the state chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the nation’s largest, 501 (c)(3), grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with mental illness. For over 35 years, NAMI-NYS has effectively provided and connected families, individuals, schools, and families of veterans with resources, support, free education, and advocacy to maintain vibrant and mentally healthy communities across New York State.
We thank you in advance for giving the gift of Hope and Recovery.
