NAMI celebrates a new location on Secor
The Greater Toledo branch of the National Alliance for Mental Health, better known as NAMI, celebrated its new location on Secor Rd., across from the Toledo Clinic, with a ribbon cutting on Friday, April 8. .
In operation since 1983, NAMI of Greater Toledo strives to provide support and connection to people struggling with mental health issues, as well as offering help to their families.
Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz and MHRSB President Sena Friendman stood on the sidelines as Executive Director Robin L. Isenberg sheared the ribbon in front of a cheering crowd.
“We needed a place that was warm, welcoming, accessible and safe,” said Isenberg. “Now we can turn our attention to our biggest fundraiser of the year on May 21.”
Isenberg was referring to NAMI Walks Your Way, an event held in locations across the country mental health awareness and funding for NAMI organizations in the region.
NAMI Greater Toledo is hosting its event on Saturday, May 21, from the organization’s parking lot on Secor Road. In addition to creating a sense of community, the event hopes to raise $75,000 to help fund NAMI’s free zone programs related to mental illness.

Isenberg also reminded the crowd to vote for Number 3 — a renewal of a property tax that provides funding for mental health programs, as well as alcohol and drug addiction programs — on May 3.
