"Mental Health Mamas" - Wellness Advocates for Families in Crisis
NAMI Central Texas is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI Central Texas provides education, support, and advocacy programs at no cost for families and individuals impacted by mental health issues as well as community mental health training and workshops.
With this grant, NAMI Central Texas will launch “Mental Health Mamas,” a program to support parents and caregivers of children experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health Mamas will connect families to support programs, resources, education and—just as importantly—hope.
With the Impact Austin grant, NAMI Central Texas launched brand new online programming - providing support and resources for parents and caregivers with children who are navigating mental health issues. This new online programming served 2,185 people participating in over 150 programs.
