Dear BeachFest Captains and Participants,
I am the new BeachFest 3K Manager for our 2020 event. I want to once again thank you for your participation last year and I look forward to working with you and helping your team to reach its goals this year!
We would like to invite all Team Captains and Participants to join us at our March 18th Kickoff Party at Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Manhasset, NY, as we ring in the BeachFest season with excitement and inspiration.
For over 40 years we have been helping your friends, neighbors and perhaps even your family member who struggles with mental health issues.
Because of the fear of stigma and a lack of education and treatment our mental health crisis is costing lives. NAMI Queens/Nassau is committed to building better lives and ensuring dignity and respect for those affected by mental illness through support, education and advocacy. We have helped hundreds of families to cope and understand the struggles that their loved ones are going through and we have given them the tools to aid in their recovery through education programs like Family to Family.
In 2019 NAMI Queens/Nassau's Unites program provided a judgement free sanctuary for some of the 115,000 people struggling with a serious mental health condition by participating in socialization activities that address the loneliness and isolation so many members of our community experience. By bringing Ending the Silence (ETS) into the classroom, NAMI Queens/Nassau helped the nearly 20% of HS students experiencing a mental health condition understand and cope with their condition. Moreover, ETS helps students recognize suicide warning signs and helps them understand what to do if they recognize these signs in themselves or a classmate.
Please let me know if we will be seeing you on March 18th as well as April 25th at BeachFest. We are working hard to make sure 2020 is the most successful campaign yet. I look forward to seeing you then!
