Member at Large


Alison Canjar

It was when our loved one was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 19 that we were horrified to realize how little we knew about illnesses that affect the brain. After attending the Family-To-Family class, I knew that I wanted to participate in helping others find the same comfort, hope and insight that we had found and became trained as a F2F instructor, Family Support Group facilitator and family member participant for the Provider Education Program.

I have been very active with the Denver affiliate, coordinating and promoting classes and programs while continuing to co-teach the Family-To-Family course. I believe that mental health issues are an urgent civil rights matter and I continually participate in advocacy whenever possible and view every interaction with others as an opportunity to change hearts and minds about such an important topic.

I believe that NAMI is uniquely qualified to make a difference and am extremely appreciative for the opportunities NAMI has given me to help with these efforts. I am also continually amazed by the people that I have had the privilege of knowing as a result of my, and my entire family’s, involvement with NAMI. It is an honor to serve in this capacity as we continue to support communities throughout Colorado in so many invaluable ways.
