Employees of LIVunLtd joined together to increase awareness of mental illness and to raise much- needed funds for NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The team of 13 walkers raised $890 through their fundraising efforts.
NAMI is the United States’ largest grassroots mental health organization and its mission is to build better lives for the millions of Americans who are affected by mental illness. 43.8 million Americans are thought to experience mental illness in a given year.
NAMI is comprised of more than 500 local affiliates who work in communities across the country to raise awareness and provide support and education. NAMI offers a wealth of resources to help not only those experiencing mental illness but also to help their families and friends, providing answers and information they need when they need it.
Beth Caplan, CFO at LIVunLtd, learned about NAMI when her family was experiencing a mental health crisis. The tools and support they received helped them through an extremely difficult time. Read why Beth supports NAMI.

“It’s an honor to be able to share the NAMI message and help to end the stigma. No one should suffer alone. It’s okay to not be okay,” said Kerin Daly, lifestyle manager.
