Amateur Radio volunteers are urgently needed to assist with communications during the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Walkon Saturday, May 13, at the South Street Seaport Promenade in New York City. Jose Lugo, KD2CJP, who is coordinating the NAMI event, said his team needs “all available hands on deck.” Contact him with availability as soon as possible. Only reply if you are able to help!
Volunteers will be needed starting at about 8:30 AM. The event begins at 10 AM.
Support provides for veteran caregiver training, programs for middle and high school students to raise awareness and change perceptions around mental illness, programs to support Spanish-speaking caregivers, and support for the NAMI Young Adult Support Group to reinforce that NAMI-NYC is a place for young adults to gain support during major life transitions. — Thanks to Deborah M.
