Stop on By

If you are in the Columbus area on April 5 I urge you to stop by the campus of The Ohio State University for the event described below. Mental illness is one of the most complex disabilities and I’m a admiring fan of the self-advocacy movement that today’s college and university students have been developing across the nation.

If you wish to request accommodations for a disability or

have questions regarding the student chapter of NAMI,

please E-mail Lisa at carvitti.3@osu.edu for more information.

NAMI on Campus affiliates are student-run, student-led organizations providing mental health support, education, and advocacy in a university or college setting.

Their mission is to improve the lives of students who are directly or indirectly affected by mental illness, increase the awareness and mental health services on campus, and to eliminate the stigma students with mental illness face.
