Letting People Know They Are Not Alone

About 20% of New Yorkers will be diagnosed with a mental illness and 100% of the population will experience mental health issues  at different points in their lives. Mental health issues don’t just impact the individual, they affect the whole family.

Though everyone will face mental health challenges, too many of us are still reluctant to discuss these challenges and seek help.The NAMI-NYS Ribbon Campaign takes mental health out of the shadows to let people know that NAMI is a place to find help and find hope for both individuals and families.

Starting Critical Conversations

 Having the ribbons displayed in businesses and on streets, public parks and places where people go every day demonstrates that mental health issues impact everyone and is a part everyday life. This increased awareness reduces the isolation that many people feel when faced with mental health challenges.

Forming Partnerships to Raise Awareness and End Stigma

It takes a community to help raise mental health awareness and demonstrate acceptance and understanding. The NAMI-NYS Ribbon Campaign allows NAMI-NYS and our local affiliates to partner with the local governments, police and fire departments, businesses, colleges, universities, middle schools and high schools to let our neighbors know they are not alone and we are here to support each other.
