The US House of Representatives proclaimed July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month in 2008, aiming to improve access to mental health treatment and services for multicultural communities through increased public awareness. Since then, individuals and organizations around the country have joined NAMI in celebrating the Month and increasing awareness. Join us!

We are collecting toiletries for people coming out of the Crisis Response Center. Some of these individuals have no place to go when they are released, and it would be nice for them to leave with a small bag of hygiene essentials (e.g. soap, toothpaste, a toothbrush, floss, deodorant, shampoo, sunscreen, lotion, a comb, etc.). You probably have some unused toiletries sitting in suitcases or in the back of a drawer just waiting to be put to good use! You may even want to have your service group, co-workers or friends get together to collect and assemble them into quart size bags, or small drawstring sacks.
You can drop off your sample size toiletries between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the NAMI Southern Arizona office.
