I am participating in NAMIWalks MetropolitanHouston on May14th, 2011. NAMI stands for, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. I formed the team, "Bipolar Bears," because I myself have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Though we will be walking in support of all mental illnesses, and the money that will be raised will go to aiding NAMI, which covers all arenas of mental illnesses, I have decided to make our focal point Bipolar Disorder.
