America’s Heroes Group Podcast, episode 276, addresses unsheltered Veterans who live with mental illness with Gigi Crowder, Executive Director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Contra Costa, California. Together, the America’s Heroes Group Roundtable and Crowder discuss why mental health matters for Veterans.
NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. The organization provides support and education for those with mental illness, including support groups, a NAMI HelpLine, and other resources.
America Heroes Group’s mission is to honor and respect the relentless commitment, ultimate sacrifice, and unwavering dedication of our retired Veterans and Active Service members thereby empowering and transforming their lives as they age in place and reacclimate back into society through identifying and positioning local and national communities as military friendly.
