NAMI Statement on U.S. Senator Pete Domenici Retirement
Date:10/4/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Michael J. Fitzpatrick, executive director of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) today thanked Senator Pete Domenici (New Mexico) for his long commitment to people with serious mental illnesses. The statement followed the senator's announcement of his intention to retire rather than seek re-election in 2008.

"During 35 years in the nation's capital, Senator Pete Domenici's leadership has benefited millions of Americans who live with serious mental illnesses," Fitzpatrick declared. "We thank him for all he has done for individuals and families who face the disabling impact of brain disorders.

"He has educated Americans.

"He has set priorities for scientific and clinical research. He has worked to help homeless people with mental illnesses.

"He has fought for an end to discrimination by seeking to enact mental health insurance parity-legislation which is now pending in Congress.

"His commitment has been constant. His voice has been one of reason. He has consistently inspired bipartisan action.

"Before he retires, NAMI can think of no greater tribute than for the U.S. Congress to pass his parity bill and send it to the President to be signed into law."

NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots organization dedicated to helping improve the lives of individuals and families living with mental illnesses, including major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and borderline personality disorder. Next week marks Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 7-13) and Bipolar Disorder Awareness Day (October 11), dedicated to public education and efforts to eliminate stigma and discrimination.
