A major part of being a founder is taking good care of yourself. You’re building an empire! Wellbeing and good mental health are very important to us, so we’ve compiled some resources for you, compliments of some of the wonderful partners of Raleigh Founded.

NAMI Wake: 

NAMI is a nonprofit committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those living with mental health conditions, their families and the community at large. 

“NAMI Wake County is the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

We offer free programming to support individuals and families affected by mental illness in the Wake County area.

NAMI Wake embraces the philosophy of recovery. According to the Surgeon General’s 2000 report, ‘Instead of focusing primarily on symptom relief, as the medical model dictates, recovery casts a much wider spotlight on restoration of self-esteem and identity and on attaining meaningful roles in society.’”

We partner with NAMI in hopes that our community will be connected to supports and resources for mental health and wellness. For more information and to connect with services, visit: https://nami-wake.org/
