AIR (Anonymous. Inspiring. Relatable) is the new NAMI app, a free, mobile-based social network designed for individuals living with mental health conditions and their family members/caregivers.
NAMI AIR is intended to provide another way for people to find and give support, to connect with others through smart phone and computer tablet.
AIR encourages users to anonymously share their stories and receive feedback in the form of social interactions such as “like,” “hug” and “me too.”
Also allows users to access information on how to get help, learn more about NAMI and connect with the NAMI HelpLine.
AIR facilitates personal connections with others who may be going through, or have been through, similar situations. Users are anonymous but not alone.
“A lot of times I feel I can’t talk to people about the way I’m feeling. NAMI AIR is like an anonymous Facebook…you can find support and home.” Dylan
Dear NAMI Supporter,
Anyone who has wrestled with mental illness, or loves someone with mental health conditions, understands the isolation Dylan expresses. There are days you would give anything for a supportive shoulder or a reassuring hug.
But while millions of Americans have been touched by mental illness, fear often stands in the way of reaching out to others. Too many walk this difficult road alone.
Today, thanks to Philosophy, Inc., you have a special opportunity to provide help and comfort.
Philosophy, Inc., a major beauty company, has challenged us to match their gift of $75,000 by raising an additional $75,000 from supporters like you. If we meet this challenge, we will have a total of $150,000 to build a stigmafree movement to embrace support and awareness for mental health and help lift the painful stigma of mental illness.
Your tax-deductible gift helps provide support for millions of people affected by mental illness. Whether through our toll-free HelpLine, or our newly launched AIR (Anonymous, Inspiring, Relatable) app, or any of our other programs, people with no one else to turn to are looking to us.
P.S. — This special challenge from Philosophy, Inc. can’t be missed. Help us meet this challenge to raise $75,000 to erase the stigma of mental illness.
