This week, our CEO, Jessica Cruz, celebrates 10 years with NAMI California.

“In ten years, I have met amazing people that I now call friends; I have struggled but have grown out of it; and I have accepted that we can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.  I am looking forward to many more years in continuing to fight alongside warriors to make sure ALL people impacted by mental illness are seen, heard and served.”

Thank you for your tireless efforts and leadership!
