NAMI Applauds NPR Story Highlighting Mental Health on Campus
Date:10/24/2009

National Alliance on Mental Illness 'On Campus' resource available to college students

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) October 23, 2009 -- The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) applauds the commitment by National Public Radio to devote time to the ongoing and important topic of mental illness through their recent show "Colleges See Rise In Mental Health Issues," which highlighted the dramatic increase in the number of students with mental illness on the nation's college and university campuses.

The NPR show highlighted new data, based on national surveys, which found campus therapists indicate an unprecedented number of college students are requesting psychiatric help. NAMI agrees with the show's findings that while many students are flourishing, some do need significant support to manage their illnesses on campus. Michael J. Fitzpatrick, NAMI Executive Director comments, "Higher education is the foundation that allows young adults to ultimately lead independent and productive lives, especially important for those with mental illnesses."

NAMI has worked to develop resources and programs that address the needs of college students, such as NAMI on Campus clubs, a student-run and led organization that focuses on improving the lives of students directly and indirectly affected by mental illness.
