Nadeem was one of the most funny, caring,
loving, human beings that ever walked this
earth. He would always find a way to help others and make people feel good about themselves,
even while he was going through his own
A few years ago Nadeem started suffering from
mental illness and was diagnosed with
bipolar schizophrenia. This was something that Nadeem struggled on a daily basis.
Nadeem had a lot of support from his family and
A handful of his closest friends that he knew he
could always count on at any time. As Nadeem
learned more about his mental illness he
realized that not many people had the love and
support that he had.
Nadeem put together 2 events to promote
mental illness awareness in Southern Cali. He
wanted to share his story to others, and wanted
people to learn more about what mental illness
People need to learn more about mental illness and how they can accept, help, and support
those suffering with whatever type of mental
illness they have.
Through the Nadeem U. Farooqi Mental Health
Awareness Foundation, we will provide help,
and support to those in need. Through this
foundation we will help spread awareness so
that first responders, family members, friends,
and colleagues can learn how to approach
Someone who is having a mental breakdown or
a manic episode.
Raising awareness of mental illness was
something Nadeem was very passionate about. We will continue to keep his memory and legacy
alive and do what he would want in helping
“let’s laugh, cry, and think of how to make the
world better.” -Nadeem U. Farooqi
