Giving Tuesday save-the-date-sparkle-blue2-1024x438

First there was Black Friday…. 

Then there was Small Business Saturday… 

And don’t forget about Cyber Monday. 

Now there is #Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, harnessing the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity. On Tuesday, December 1, consider helping those living with a mental health diagnosis and their family members by making a contribution to NAMI Greater Cleveland’s Annual Fund.


NAMI Greater Cleveland is one of four U.S.-based community programs recently selected to receive $10,000 and access to a one-on-one Mentorship Program for exemplifying the C4MH mission.

The Awards program was designed to honor local mental health organizations that have successfully introduced novel approaches to address mental health in one of four program categories: early intervention, creative use of technology, continuity of care and service integration. NAMI Greater Cleveland received the Continuity of Care Award. 
“The organization’s Emotional Wellness Programming supports high-poverty public housing residents who have experienced long lapses in treatment or have never received services for suspected mental illness. The program has been implemented at two inner-city public housing complexes in Cleveland. As a result, residents at each facility have improved their physical and mental well-being, nurtured a supportive community of peers, and successfully avoided eviction. NAMI Greater Cleveland was awarded NAMI’s 2014 National Affiliate of the Year.”

NAMI-header2 presented by The Cleveland Clinic was held Saturday, August 29, 2015 at Edgewater Park. Over 1,000 people joined us to walk and raise funds for NAMI Greater Cleveland as part of Cleveland’s largest mental health event.  Thank you to to our sponsors and everyone who participated. Click here  for a complete list of our 2015 NAMIWalks Sponsors

We’ve sent 20,000 messages to Congress to urge them to reform mental health care.

We need to send 20,000 more.

Congress needs to see perfectly clearly how important mental health care is to our country. Congress doesn’t need glasses to see 20/20—it needs your advocacy.

Contact Chairman Fred Upton and Ranking Member Frank Pallone, two House Committee leaders who will help decide the future of health care reform, and urge them to move comprehensive mental health reform (HR 2646) forward.
