Mitch Kusick – Member at Large
Mitch first became exposed to NAMI in 2014 after attending an In Our Own Voice (IOOV) presentation. After hearing the recovery journeys and what an impact this organization had made in the lives of the speakers, he wanted to lend assistance to NAMI. In January 2015, Mitch became a contributing member to the Walk Committee. Recently he’s assumed the role as the Outreach correspondent for the annual fundraiser. Additionally, Mitch became an IOOV presenter this past Summer and has shared his story about a dozen times in order to provide hope to those who were once in his shoes. His most recent venture with NAMI, and something that he’s extremely passionate about, is the Ending the Silence (ETS) program. As the Coordinator for the program, Mitch has recruited potential presenters, gotten in touch with high schools, and offered insights that will shape the program for the foreseeable future. Mitch graduated from MSU-Denver with a degree in psychology and currently works in Human Resources for UPS. In his spare time, he enjoys running and cooking to fuel his active lifestyle.
