Counseling Department Raised $1,488.72 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness

The Department of Counseling participated in the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) fundraising walk on Saturday, October 8th. Together, twelve students and faculty members raised $1,488.72 to donate to NAMI New Orleans which provides mental health services and supportive services for affected families. After adding up the donations, Team Co-Captain Matthew Watson, a second year student, commented, "I'm so proud and honored to be part of a team that showed that we're not simply going to school 9 hours a week just to get a degree, but actually care about our community and work on many levels, beyond those 9 hours, to do our part to improve mental health services for those who need it." The Counseling Department plans to participate in the walk next year and continue its community outreach efforts.
