Cheri Bishop – Program Director

Cheri discovered NAMI Colorado in 1999 when her 21-yr. old son became ill with schizophrenia. She felt NAMI saved her son’s life and wanted to give back by helping other families living with mental illness. In 1999, she took the Family-to-Family teacher training, the first one ever offered in Colorado. Cheri is also a Family-to-Family state trainer. Twenty years later she is still teaching Family-to-Family. She also facilitates a NAMI family support group twice a month. In 2004 she was hired by NAMI Colorado for the position of Family-to-Family and Colorado Visions Coordinator and was soon managing 9 NAMI Signature programs and 2 NAMI CO programs. Cheri has 2 adult sons diagnosed with mental illness. Her passion lies in assisting and supporting families and individuals living with mental illness and providing them with the knowledge that there is hope for recovery.
