NAMIHC STAFF & FRIENDS
Our team NAMIHC Staff & Friends is participating in the 2018 NAMIWalks event in Baltimore. We want to invite you to become a team member.
We have committed to raising funds to help NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) provide more services for people living with mental health challenges. Our team fundraising goal is $1,000. With your help, I know that we can reach this goal!
NAMIWalks is the largest and most successful mental health fundraising and awareness event in America! Through NAMIWalks’ public, active display of support for people affected by mental illness, we are changing how Americans view individuals with a mental illness and ensuring that help and hope are available for those in need.
Visit our team page to join our team or to make a donation supporting our fundraising efforts.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Fact: 43.8 million adults experience mental illness in a given year.

Police expand voluntary “flagging” program for calls to 911
Howard County police are expanding a program in which residents can voluntarily “flag” their address in the 911 system to make police aware of a family member with a disability. The program began through a partnership with autism advocates in 2012, but has expanded to include other information residents believe would be relevant to a police response, if 911 is ever called.
- Intellectual, developmental or degenerative disabilities
- Physical disabilities
- Mental health diagnoses
- Other behavior that may affect police response
NAMI MEMBERSHIP CHANGE
The new category, Household, is for families who want all members of the household to be members of NAMI. You should list all members of the household who will be included as members on the back of the renewal form. Household Membership will be regarded as a single membership, no matter how many people are included.
