I recently spoke at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Oregon Luncheon. As a retired Registered Nurse who worked in psychiatry for 26 years, I know firsthand the importance of providing the necessary support and care for people experiencing mental illnesses, and their families and friends.
In addition to supporting NAMI through this luncheon, I also participate in the annual NAMI Northwest Walk event. Pictured with me at this year's kick-off event is Dave Dahl, who is President of Dave's Killer Bread, 2012 honorary walk chair, and a longtime NAMI supporter.
