NAMI Montana is so touched by all of the end of the year donations that are coming in. We are a really lean team that relies heavily on volunteers, so our fundraising efforts just aren’t as sophisticated as some of the other nonprofits.
These donations allow us to hit the ground running as we move into 2022. NAMI Montana is committed to strengthening and expanding the support groups and education classes available across Montana. With complicated mental health conditions, education and support can be essential to recovery.
There are three critical legislative studies involving Montana’s mental health and criminal justice system with hearings in January. NAMI Montana played a critical role in developing these studies and we are working to come up with more sustainable options for care and crisis services in our communities.
We are also working to pass the Guaranteeing Healthcare Access to Personnel Who Served Act which will expand access to critical mental health services for veterans like peer support and care for treatment-resistant depression. This bill will be essential to providing those services to veterans in rural states like Montana. We are hopeful that the bill will pass Congress in early 2022 and be ready for the President’s signature.
None of this would be possible without support of our donors. Thank you again for your generous assistance in this effort.
