Don't suffer in silence. We can help each other, with compassion and knowledge.
NAMI Northern Lakes was founded in March, 2011, by a group of Northwoods residents responding to a call to action by our founder, Audrey Kissinger. Audrey had two adult sons with serious and persistent mental illness. She first got involved with NAMI in southeast Wisconsin, and when she moved home to the Northwoods, she decided to start a chapter here.
