Mental Illness Awareness Week Proclamations

During this month’s Mental Illness Awareness Week, various city councils in the Wood River Valley passed proclamations, including Mayor Nina Jonas from Ketchum, Mayor Fritz Haemmerle from Hailey and Mayor Chris Koch from Bellevue.

NAMI-WRV encourages public officials to go on the record in support of mental health and a stigma- free community. An official signing of a proclamation designating Mental Illness Awareness Week is a perfect occasion for a news event, photo opportunity or other activity.

We are proud that our public officials have gone on the record in support of mental health and a stigma- free community.
