The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Davidson County provides support, advocacy, and education to those with mental illness and their loved ones. This semester long project includes (but is not limited to) advocacy through the use of instagram/social media, attending legislative events, creating marketing materials appropriate for the population, and looking at mental health through an occupational therapy lens.
