HELP HOPE RECOVERY 2014 Annual Report

Fox Valley

To our community of participants, partners, friends and supporters, Thanks to your generosity and support in 2014, NAMI Fox Valley had an amazing year of providing help, hope and recovery. We served a record 7,386 community members with our education, support, advocacy and outreach programs. That’s more than double the number of people we served in 2013 and a whopping fivefold increase of the number served compared to 2010. We are successfully finding, and serving, more of the 1 in 4 with our signature programs for consumers and families. Guided by our strategic plan, we set some aggressive goals to find more of the 1 in 4 through outreach into the wider community. Now more than ever, our community needs NAMI Fox Valley and we are stepping up, expanding our reach and building capacity to meet the challenge. Mental illness has been identified as one of the top two pressing issues facing our community. We focused a lot of effort in 2014 growing our youth programs. Half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14, and three-quarters by age 24. Suicide, meanwhile, is the third leading cause of death for youth aged 15 to 24. Educating youth about mental illness and connecting them to supports and services can, quite literally, be a lifesaver. We added two new teen support groups, doubling our capacity to serve teens throughout the Fox Cities. We also added a Young Adult Support & Transitions Group for older youth (18-26) seeking out peer support as they face life’s new challenges. We proudly rolled out Ending the Silence and Ending the Silence 101 in earnest last year, providing age-appropriate and basic education about mental health to 2,000 middle school and high school students.

our mission NAMI Fox Valley works to support and empower everyone touched by mental illness. We commit to eliminate stigma and nurture recovery through education, support, advocacy and outreach.

our vision We envision a community, free of stigma, that supports and promotes mental health and recovery.

Providing peer support is at the heart of what we do and we are thrilled to be one of three sites in Wisconsin developing a state-funded Peer Run Respite for mental health consumers. This new healing center, named “The Iris Place,” will open in 2015 and serve as a supportive alternative to hospitalization. The center will be staffed entirely by peers – those who have lived with mental illness – who understand the journey, and can offer a recovery-oriented experience to guests during their stay. Several of the The Iris Place’s new employees are graduates of NAMI Fox Valley’s NEW Hope Peer Specialist Training Program, which also launched in 2014. We are so proud of all of our graduates as they take their training and skill sets into the community to support and empower others who are working toward recovery. In addition to these initiatives, we continue to work every day to ensure that children and adults with mental illness, and their families, are treated with dignity, have access to quality care, live rich, full lives in our community and have hope for the future. This year’s accomplishments would not have been possible without your generous support of our critical work, nor without the continued commitment and dedication of NAMI Fox Valley’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers. We are deeply grateful for everyone’s time, talent and contributions over the past year. We look forward to continuing our mission of help, hope and recovery into 2015! Sincerely, Beth Clay, Executive Director

NAMI Fox Valley welcomes two new staff members. Tracy Aliota, an experienced school counselor, is hired as the agency’s new Community Outreach Coordinator.

NAMI Fox Valley and The Arc Fox Cities (now called SOAR Fox Cities) are honored with Appleton Downtown Inc’s President’s Award for our joint fundraising campaign known as “The Flight to Building Opportunities.” The campaign raised $1.2 million, allowing us, as co-owners of our new 211 E. Franklin St. building, to pay off the mortgage, purchase a new HVAC system and create a building endowment fund!

NAMI Fox Valley is selected as one of three Wisconsin sites to receive state funding to open a Peer Run Respite Center for mental health consumers. Our agency is awarded $442,000 to develop the center, which will offer short-stay respite in a homelike environment for people with mental illness.

expanding education Our signature education programs experienced significant growth as we worked to increase our capacity to meet demand in the community.






A record 89 participants graduated from the five Family-to-Family courses we offered in 2014. The free, 12-week program is designed for family members and loved ones of adults living with mental illness.

A total of 30 mental health consumers graduated from Peer-to-Peer, a 10-week program focused on mental health recovery. Taught by peer mentors who are living well with mental illness, this informative and inspiring education provides hope, help, tools and the support needed to engage in wellness and recovery.

REAP – Recovery, Education & Advocacy Program: In this program, also known as Peer-to-Peer Part 2, participants apply what they’ve learned to create an individualized recovery plan for physical and mental wellness. A record 20 participants graduated from the course in 2014.

Our agency held a spring and summer session of MICA in 2014, which offers 32 hours of education on mental illness in children. Both sessions were full, and we reached a total of 54 participants, including parents, educators and others who wished to better understand the impact of mental illness on children and their families and available resources in the community.

NEW Hope Peer Specialist Training: NAMI Fox Valley is proud to have launched its NEW Hope Peer Specialist Training Program in 2014, modeled after a nationally-renowned peer specialist training program developed by the University of Kansas. The program prepares participants to become Wisconsin Certified Peer Specialists. A Certified Peer Specialist is someone who is living well with mental illness and has received extensive training to serve as a support person for others living with mental illness, and has passed a state certification exam. Eleven students completed the inaugural class, graduating in January 2015. During their 100-hour internships the students connected with and supported more than 600 mental health consumers. Six of the graduates have since been offered jobs where their new skill set is central to their role.


Peer Specialist graduates include B.W. Alford, Steven Anderson, Jeanne Dixon, Amanda Farrell, Heather Gozdzialski, Tom Jadin, Evelyn Koehnke, Valerie Neff, Philip Stuard, Michael Urmanski, and David Zanon.

growing support Knowing that you are not alone – and connecting with others on a similar journey – is a powerful coping tool for those affected by mental illness. Our support groups offer a safe place for participants to seek comfort and moral support, while also benefiting from the collective knowledge of the group.





New Support Groups Added In 2014, our agency offered a dozen support groups, including four new support groups added during the year: • We launched two additional teen support groups, increasing our capacity to serve more teens living with mental illness. Fox Valley teens can now choose from four support groups: two in Appleton, one in Kimberly and one in Neenah. • Our new Men’s Support Group (for men living with mental illness) meets weekly at the Community Outreach Center, Appleton. • The Parent & Caregiver Support Group, which meets once a month, is a welcome resource for parents and caregivers of children and teens 18 and under who struggle with mental illness. • We also launched the Young Adult Support & Transition Group, providing peer support and living skills for young adults, ages 18 to 26, living with mental illness.

Dana Hainer and Rob Kaminski facilitate the Parent & Caregiver Support Group.

Existing Support Groups Going Strong Our agency’s existing support groups have experienced steady growth and continue to offer help, hope and support for both family members and mental health consumers. These groups include: The Family Sharing Support Group; Faith-Based Family Sharing; New Hope Support Group; Mood Disorders Support Group; Anxiety Disorders Support Group; and the Coffee Clutch.

Artful Expression Promotes Mental Wellness In collaboration with the YMCA, NAMI Fox Valley offers this free, 15-week program for tweens and teens, ages 11 to 14, to explore the creative arts to cultivate mental health and wellness. The program served 17 children and teens in 2014. Participants create their own special projects using a medium of their choice, such as pottery, dance, photography, painting or drawing.

Peer Run Respite to open in 2015 NAMI Fox Valley looks forward to opening a Peer Run Respite Center in Appleton in 2015. We were awarded a $442,000 state grant in 2014 to develop the center, which will offer respite care and support for people struggling with mental illness. As part of a 2014 package of mental health initiatives, Gov. Scott Walker approved more than $2 million in state funds to create three Peer Run Respite centers, the first of their kind in the state. NAMI Fox Valley’s Peer Run Respite will be staffed completely by peers, many of whom will be state-certified peer specialists, and will offer support, resources and hope to guests.


meaningfuladvocacy NAMI Fox Valley’s advocacy provides a unique voice for people in our community who live with mental illness and their families. We work to end discrimination, reduce barriers to successful living and promote timely, comprehensive and effective mental health services and supports. Peer, Family and Parent Advocates The staff and volunteers at NAMI Fox Valley get it. We understand. We know what it’s like when mental illness turns a family’s life upside down or leaves someone feeling alone and overwhelmed and not knowing where to turn for help. NAMI Fox Valley offers trained volunteers who serve as peer, family and parent advocates who are only a phone call away. Mental health consumers and family members can call NAMI Fox Valley and leave a message for an advocate, who returns their call within 24 hours. Our trained advocates answer questions about our programs and services, share community resources and will listen and offer a reassuring voice of understanding and empathy. Our trained volunteer advocates and support group facilitators are available to listen, share resources and offer support. ▼





Creating Hope: The Power of Faith Communities in Mental Health Recovery Mental Health Ministries Nearly 70 faith leaders turned out for “Creating Hope” on Oct. 30, 2014, a first-of-its-kind mental health training workshop put on by Samaritan Counseling Center and NAMI Fox Valley. The training, held at The Grand Meridian in Appleton, was designed to give church clergy and lay leaders a solid understanding of the major mental illnesses, mental health resources in our community, and how to reach and help those suffering from mental illness or mental health problems.

Community Advocacy NAMI Fox Valley, alongside NAMI Wisconsin and NAMI National, is a vocal and ardent advocate for those affected by mental illness. We are proud to sit on state, regional and community boards and committees related to mental health to ensure the voices of people with mental illness are heard. In 2014, NAMI Fox Valley • Served on the leadership team for the Community Mental Health Improvement Project led by Outagamie County Public Health. Mental illness was identified as one of the top two issues to be addressed in our community. • Became the chair of the Children’s Mental Health Initiative of the N.E.W. Mental Health Connection. • Collaborated with the Community Outreach Center to bring “peer” orientation to the center’s leadership, staffing and programming. • Served on the planning committee for Let’s Talk About It 2, a mental health community public awareness event. • Helped coordinate the first-ever “Mental Health Plunge” held in the Waupaca-New London area in 2014. • Supported the Appleton Area School District and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s application for funding the development of Youth Mental Health First Aid. • Served on numerous community boards and committees, including N.E.W. Mental Health Connection, Fox Cities Youth Worker Coalition, the Regional Mental Health Network, CESA 6 Safe and Healthy Schools, Pre-Action, Action for Hope, Fox Valley ATODA Prevention Pillar committee, Catalpa Day Treatment Planning Committee, Mental Health Awareness Month planning committee, Peer Run Respite State Advisory Board, and the Wisconsin Integrated Peer Specialist Advisory Committee.

NAMI Fox Valley distributes thousands of green mental health awareness ribbons each year. ▼

This class has profoundly helped my own recovery in so many ways and has equipped me to help others recover. You guys are the symbol of grace and what a person-driven, goal-oriented, well-rounded education and mental wellbeing looks like. ~Peer-to-Peer graduate, 2014


communityoutreach NAMI Fox Valley is the community’s voice on mental illness and works tirelessly to raise awareness, provide fact-based information on mental illness and break down stigma and hurtful stereotypes about mental illness. The more conversations we have about mental illness, the more comfortable people will become talking about it and learning about it. We are determined to make the stigma surrounding mental illness a relic of the past. Mental illness is an illness like any other, and overcoming stigma – whether internal or external – is often the first step to seeking out help and treatment.

Ending the Silence Our Ending the Silence and Ending the Silence 101 presentations reached 2,000 middle and high school students throughout the Fox Valley. Ending the Silence educates high school students about the basic signs and symptoms of mental illness, presents personal stories to reduce stigma and provides resource materials for students. Ending the Silence 101 is designed for middle school students and provides an overview of mental illness - placing a human face on the issue and confronting myths that reinforce stigma.

May Mental Health Awareness Month For the second consecutive year, NAMI Fox Valley, in partnership with N.E.W. Mental Health Connection, Samaritan Counseling Center and ThedaCare Behavioral Health, collaborated to organize a May Mental Health Awareness Month kickoff event, followed by a month of community awareness-raising activities. Gov. Scott Walker attended the 2014 kickoff, held May 1 at Riverview Gardens in Appleton, where more than 200 mental health supporters, community members, local and state leaders joined together to pledge to fight stigma and improve mental health services and supports in the community and beyond. Gov. Scott Walker greets John Magas and Wendy Magas, NAMI FV’s Communications Director, at the May Mental Health Awareness Month kickoff.



NAMI Talks Speakers Bureau In 2014, we experienced an increased demand for our newly developed presentations which include: NAMI Fox Valley 101, Mental Illness 101, Recovery 101, Crisis De-Escalation, The Impact of Trauma & Trauma-Informed Care, in addition to other topics. Staff and trained volunteers give the presentations to community groups, businesses and organizations. We more than doubled our 2013 reach of 1,435 community members.




Second-Annual Bowl-a-Thon Exceeds Fundraising Goal Our second-annual Strike Out Stigma Bowl-a-Thon was another great success, raising more than $106,000. The event, held Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, at the Super Bowl in Appleton, included 36 teams, about 300 bowlers, two dozen sponsors and some 40 volunteers who helped us raise funds, raise awareness and put on this fun, family-friendly event. We were thrilled to have exceeded our $75,000 fundraising goal.

Team 2MUtsCH, lead by Pete and Cathy Mutschler, was the top fundraising team again in 2014. They raised more than $9,000.

Media Relations NAMI Fox Valley’s experts on mental health and mental illness were quoted and featured in the press more than a dozen times in 2014. From commenting on Robin Williams losing his battle with depression, the shortage of psychiatric beds in our community and beyond, and community collaborations around mental health, our NAMI Fox Valley experts weighed in on many mental health stories that appeared in print, on local radio and on local television stations.

Without our dedicated volunteers, we could not offer our programs at little or no cost to members of our community. Volunteers facilitate our weekly support groups, teach our education courses, provide administrative support in our office, help plan and implement our Bowl-a-Thon, support our summer picnic and holiday party and volunteer on our board and committees.

We express our sincere appreciation to all of the volunteers who made a difference in 2014.
