2021 NAMI Annual Conference
On November 14, 2020 at the NAMI-MN Virtual Annual Conference, the Nickel Open Fund donated $20,000 plus $15,000 from Dave's Compass of Hope for a total of $35,000! During the year of the pandemic, this was a huge success!
The money donated to NAMI-MN goes to continue their student education of mental illness awareness and suicide prevention within the schools in our local area.
Included in the successful teaching by NAMI this past year, the Jordan School District has integrated the "Ending the Silence" learning module into their curriculum.
This is a huge milestone for bringing further awareness to our youth!
If you are in crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK.

Our Story Continues;
On June 2, 2017, at the age of 21, Nick lost his battle with mental illness.
Many people who know Nick credit him for always being there for when they were suffering and struggling; he would drop everything to be there for a friend in crisis. Even with the support of his family, partner Brian, close friends and though he tried to help himself by reaching out by seeking psychiatric care and medication, in the end, the lies told by mental illness took him from us.
We are continuing Nick's "story" by joining forces with NAMI MN to raise awareness for mental illness and erase the stigma associated with suicide.
