Teri’s Thoughts

Greetings all! March has been a very busy month for NAMI Spokane. We’ve received so many great requests from our community lately to learn more about our services, and we want to say thank you to all of you who are spreading the word about NAMI Spokane and our life-changing Signature programs. Our programs are evidence-based and reflect industry best practices, and have been instrumental in changing lives for hundreds of families in the Spokane community. We thank our volunteers for their dedication to our mission and recognize the important work that they do. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we couldn’t do what we do without YOU!
