The National Association for Mental Illness (NAMI) works to improve the quality of life and to provide support and respect for persons with serious mental illness as well as offering support for their family and friends.
 
At the Vernon Center in Springfield, many programs are offered including the drum circle shown here. NAMI clients are transported and soothed by the rhythm and music of the drum circle.
 
Community Health Foundation is happy to provide funding support to NAMI of Clark, Greene and Madison Counties.
