The #NAMIwalks kickoff luncheon today was nothing short of inspiring. The people who spoke and shared their stories demonstrated just how important it is to have an organization like NAMI that creates community and advocates for mental health.
Earlier, I was fortunate to talk with Leslie Carpenter, an amazing woman, mental health advocate, and President-elect of the Johnson County NAMI board. Leslie’s tireless advocacy, together with her husband Scott, focuses on the need to help the seriously mentally ill. Thank you, Leslie. #RadicalEmpathy
