    NAMI Responds to the Tragedy of Hurricane Katrina
    September 3, 2005

    In the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, thousands of people are without shelter, food, water, electricity, and other basic provisions. Those affected include our NAMI family members, state and local leaders, and most critically, people with mental illnesses, whose access to treatment and medications may have been disrupted.

    NAMI has established a special dedicated fund to help provide relief to individuals and families affected by serious mental illnesses in the Gulf region left devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

    Donations to the NAMI Katrina Hurricane Relief Fund can be made online at www.nami.org or at any Wachovia bank nationwide (Account #200024603407).

    NAMI has also established a resource center for victims of the hurricane and for those wishing to provide support on the NAMI Web site. Included on the Web site: [list][*]Message Board for NAMI members and friends of NAMI to offer support and information as well as post notices about missing persons with mental illness in the affilicted region [*]Resources for victims concerning medication, housing, financial assistance and more [*]Resources for those who want to donate or volunteer [*]Information on NAMI's Katrina Hurricane Relief Fund[/list:u]
    We will be providing updates as they become available, so please check the Web site often.

    The NAMI community is strong, we'll stand together, and we'll strive to ensure that people living with mental illness and their families are not alone.
