The NAMImobile will be visiting Mansfeld as part of the 2014 statewide anti- discrimination tour on August 28th from noon to 1 p.m. The NAMImobile will be parked at the Gazebo in downtown Mansfield.

Over the summer the NAMImobile will visit 100 communities throughout the state as part of this tour. The purpose of the NAMImobile anti-discrimination tour is to end discrimination against individuals living with mental illness and their family members by getting the facts about mental illness out to the public.

Discrimination is a major barrier to people seeking help for their mental illness when they need it. Lack of treatment can result in hospitalization, loss of employment, court involvement, homelessness or worse, death.

Each community visit will include:

• The opportunity to speak with local and state mental health representatives

• Free brochures and information

• Small giveaways NAMI Ohio is the statewide alliance that serves as the voice on mental illness. The organization is comprised of over 20,000 family members, individuals, advocates and professionals working together to ensure that Ohioans with mental illness and their loved ones receive the treatment and support they need.

Serious mental illness includes such illnesses as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression.
