National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Orange County

Today I volunteered for NAMI Orange County at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Newport Beach. NAMI made presentations to the congregation. The church will be hosting a NAMI Family-to-Family class. We stood outside in unbelievably strong and gusty Santa Ana winds, chasing pamphlets. I had the pleasure of getting to know other NAMI staff and volunteers while informing interested parishioners about NAMI’s programs.

  1. Way to pay it forward, Kitt.

  2. I know, but my son was getting on my case for always being on the computer (and not giving him my undivided attention). He’s 14 now. C’mon, dude.

  3. Awww sorry, I definitely meant it as a compliment.

  4. Yikes. More a wake-up call than a compliment, I’m afraid.

  5. I am beyond proud of you for giving of your time to this – especially during the hectic holidays! NAMI-OC is incredibly fortunate to have you as a volunteer.

  6. I’m happy for you that you have the volunteer work. I know you had concerns whether you’d get it or not. Thank you for being there and helping many of our brothers and sisters.

  7. I think you’re the busiest bipolar in the blogosphere 😉

  8. Thanks, Indah! You, too.
