Thank you to everyone who supported the 2012 NAMI Walk this past weekend. Meriter was proud to be one of three Super Teams and help fight the stigma around mental illness. All of the funds collected will be used to fund NAMI’s programs here in Dane County. These programs include support, education, research and advocacy for individuals and family members affected by mental illness.

Born in Madison, NAMI serves more than 1,100 communities across the country by providing support, education and advocacy.
NAMI has been rated by Worth Magazine as among the top 100 charities “most likely to save the world” and has been given an “A” rating by The American Institute of Philanthropy for efficient and effective use of charitable dollars.
