pointer to Jim Edwards’ article on a very unfortunate conflict of interest within NAMI – a very grassy grass roots organization providing outreach, advocacy and educational support to families and patients coping with mental illness.
According to NAMI, some 56% of its budget (annual revenues have been > $13M) was funded by pharma!
My own stigma-busting efforts are with a wonderfully dedicated group of NAMI volunteers (i.e. we do everything ourselves and don’t get a nickel from NAMI). WTF? This is a shame.
