NAMI GC Announces New Executive Director

It is with great pleasure we announce Christina “Chris” Mignogna as the new Executive Director of NAMI Greater Cleveland.

Chris has been a volunteer with NAMI for a number of years and an advocate for mental health in her personal and professional life. Chris holds a Master’s in Social Work from The Ohio State University and is currently on their alumni board. She brings her knowledge of mental health, organizational development and fundraising to NAMI.

Chris’ former position was in the private sector, most recently as a Senior Account Executive for Beacon Health Options. There she developed award-winning programs around health and wellness and worked closely with a clinical team of counselors and social workers to deliver employee assistance benefits and services at many Fortune 500 organizations.

In the coming months, Chris is looking forward to meeting everyone involved with NAMI GC.

On Saturday December 15th, the Lambda Phi Omega Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) chapter presented NAMI GC with a check for $1000 they raised at their SWAG Walk last summer. For the last four years NAMI National and the AKA’S have partnered to increase awareness of mental illness throughout the country. In July, that partnership ended but NAMI Greater Cleveland has forged a great relationship with both the Lambda Phi Omega and Alpha Omega Chapter AKA chapters. We greatly appreciate their support!

When I first told the world I suffered from a major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder, I miscalculated. I was angry at the time, and I didn’t realize it would actually have a positive impact on me and the people I represent.
