Tell Us Your Story!

NAMI Virginia members in front of the US Capitol

NAMI Virginia is calling on people with serious mental illness and their families to share your stories! We would like to know who you are and what it means to be you. Please complete the form below and, if possible, upload a digital photo. Stories will be shared with a broader audience including policymakers, publications, and the media. Your stories help educate about what is important to people with serious mental illness and helps put a “personal” face on the issue.

So tell us… what is your story?

We want to hear what is working, what is not working, and what is important to you.


While you are not required to answer every question in all sections, please make sure to provide enough information to shape your story.
