Harvest Hopela is NAMI Syracuse’s major fundraiser of the year made possible due to the generosity of many individuals and companies.
Mental illness is still a topic people shy away from discussing. How do we try to tackle the stigma if we don’t bring it to people’s attention through education, personal stories of recovery and promoting the hope of recovery? Harvest Hopela is another tactic in the effort to inform our community of the supports available to families.
NAMI Syracuse sends a GREAT BIG thank you to the following businesses and individuals who are making the Harvest Hopela (more info here!) possible:
Twin Tree Too
Middle Ages Brewery
Dr. Karen Winters Schwartz and Dr. Paul Schwartz
Behind the Iron Gates
Kris of Om Home
