NAMI Gainesville hosted a series of book discussions again this year throughout the month of March. We discussed Rosalynn Carter's Within Our Reach: Ending the Mental Health Crisis.


Join us in our discussion and efforts to help transform the perception and treatment of the mentally ill in our city and our country.


On April 6th, we utilized what we learned from Mrs. Carter's book and began mapping the community's mental health landscape.

"Americans think of ourselves as decent, generous, and compassionate people, and for the most part we are. But we treat a large portion of our own population as if they are second-class citizens. Ultimately, the way we treat people with mental illnesses in our society is a moral issue—to neglect those, who through no fault of their own, are in need runs counter to our core principles—the values of  decency and equality that we hold dear."
