Nice News’ July 2024 Cause of the Month

Tax deductible
Nice News writes a lot about mental health, and now we’re giving you the opportunity to support an organization at the forefront of building better lives for Americans affected by mental illness. As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, better known as NAMI, is made up of more than 600 local affiliates working within communities to raise awareness and provide support and education.

Given that July is Disability Pride Month, we also want to highlight the connection between disability and mental health: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. adults with disabilities report experiencing frequent mental distress nearly five times as often as adults without disabilities. Mental illness is also among the most commonly reported disabilities in the country.

NAMI has resources for those experiencing the intersection of disability and mental illness, as well as myriad other tools for anyone to use, including tips for caregivers, support groups, a helpline, information on the warning signs of mental illness, and so much more. Through public policy advocacy, education programs, and public awareness events, the organization is actively shaping a better world for us all.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to NAMI. If you are struggling with your mental health, call the NAMI HelpLine at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264), text “helpline” to 62640, or email at [email redacted]; you can also call 988 to access the national suicide and crisis lifeline.
