We are so grateful for the opportunity to work together with everyone in the NAMI Fox Valley family — program participants, volunteers, collaborating partners, supporters, and friends — toward the vision of stigma-free society that promotes and encourages mental health and wellness for all.

Are you a NAMI Fox Valley member? If so, you should have received an envelope last week labeled "time sensitive materials enclosed". This is important! Please open the envelope to read about the slate of candidates up for election to the board of directors and, if you wish to vote for the recommended slate, return your signed statement to us via mail, email, fax, or by hand. We need to have at least 20% of our membership cast votes either by proxy or at next week's annual meeting ... so we are counting on you! 😊

Thank you to the Little Chute Area School District for spreading the message of kindness and supporting NAMI Fox Valley through their recent “Be Kind Day,” which recognized the importance of staff and students being kind to one another!

NAMI Fox Valley also is happy to partner with LCASD through providing a Parent Peer Advocate who works with parents of elementary or middle school students who would like peer support in navigating their child’s mental health or behavioral challenges.

Way to support kindness and mental health in your district, Little Chute! We’re so happy to work together with you to fight stigma and promote mental health and wellness.
