Stories in our Series:

Thank you to everyone who participated in this series. You positively impact and inspire our communities. Thank you to our generous partner, Interfaith America, who supports this project with a grant, and to NAMI KDK, for making this series possible. And thank you to all of you for entering and sharing these conversations, facing misconceptions about our difference and diversity, fighting mental health stigma, and challenging policymakers to combat mental health care disparities.

NAMI KDK helps fill the mental health resource gap in Illinois's Kane-south, DeKalb, and Kendall counties. We provide free support groups, education, a resource guide, advocacy opportunities, and community presentations. We recruit staff and interns that look like and represent our community. NAMI KDK has support groups for those experiencing symptoms (Connections) and those who support those experiencing symptoms (Family and Loved Ones). We have Spanish-speaking Connection and Family support groups and programs and support groups specifically for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities.
