August 5, 2014

The Natrona County Prevention Coalition Member of the Month of August 2014 is Tammy Noel, Executive Director of NAMI Wyoming. Tammy’s unwavering dedication and support to NCPC is inspiring and truly touching.

NAMI Wyoming’s mission is to be a force for change in the lives of individuals and family members affected by mental illness.  They host programs statewide offering resources, support, advocacy, and education with nine active affiliates.

Over the last year NAMI Wyoming has trained 45 individuals, statewide, in advocacy skills through the use of NAMI Smarts programming, assisted in Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) trainings for law enforcement in Powell, WY; Cody, WY; Torrington, WY; and Casper, WY.  NAMI on Campus: University of Wyoming will be hosting a 5k run/walk to kick off the fall semester in Laramie, WY.  NAMI Wyoming 5K Walk will be held on September 27th at 4 PM at Three Trails, Casper, WY.

When asked why Tammy supports and participates as a Member of NCPC, she stated, “I participate in order to increase awareness of mental illness issues within the community of Natrona County as a means to prevent systemic breakdowns within the system of care.  It is also a component of the personal philosophy of giving back to one’s community through volunteering to organizations dedicated to the improvement of the community and NCPC is an entity which holds true to this philosophy.”

Thank you Tammy, for your untiring commitment to our community and state. We are glad to have you as a part of NCPC and thrilled to award you as the August 2014 Member of the Month.
