NAMI Orange is presented with the 2017 Outstanding Small Affiliate Award
from NAMI-NYS at the Education Conference in Albany
NAMI-NYS stated: "This award is presented in grateful recognition of your efforts to advance the NAMI-NYS intention of providing help, hope, education and support to the citizens of Orange County. This award recognizes the outstanding work NAMI Orange does to provide NAMI programming as well as raise awareness of mental health issues throughout Orange County. The advancements that NAMI Orange County have made clearly demonstrate that you do not need to be a large affiliate to have a huge impact on your community. Along with the tremendous amount of education and support programs the affiliate offers, they have also made great inroads in the criminal justice system, including having an office inside Mid-Hudson Forensic facility, ensuring that 'forensic families' also receive the support that they need."
