2019 Annual Appeal & Annual Report

The Impact is Real | A Story of Youth Standing for Youth in Mental Health

After learning that 1 in 5 students is experiencing a mental health issue, I knew that so many of my classmates are struggling – largely in silence and alone. I feel that if mental health diagnoses could be destigmatized, more students would be willing to recognize they have an illness and seek help. I am doing what I can to be part of the change in how teens view mental health. I am honored to be NAMI CCNS’s first-ever student ambassador. During this school year, I will be telling my story to students at local schools as part of NAMI’s “Ending the Silence” program.
This is the situation that NAMI CCNS Ambassador Cavan found herself and her family in as she struggled to understand what she was experiencing. Cavan decided to act and came in to the NAMI CCNS office to offer her services as a volunteer and mental health advocate. Within a week she was chosen as the keynote speaker for our annual gala, where she shared her story and made a difference!
For as long as I can remember, I have set high standards for myself—to obtain straight As, score goals in soccer, and be involved in a multitude of activities. At some point, though, I no longer found joy in my achievements. When I met my goals, I simply felt like I checked a box. I moved onto the next objective without celebration or satisfaction. On those many occasions– when I fell short of the impossibly tall orders that I set for myself–I felt unmoored. In each instance, I thought these feelings were completely normal and so I kept them to myself.
NAMI Ending the Silence Speaker - Cavan
Everything changed the summer before my sophomore year of high school. In June 2017, I attended my annual physical exam. Before my appointment, my doctor had my brother and me fill out a routine depression questionnaire. Apparently, I filled in some concerning bubbles because my doctor was insisting to talk to my mom, who wasn’t there. My doctor asked me probing questions about what was wrong. I became a puddle of tears and confided in her.
I told her that I had been binging and purging off and on over the past three years; however, I assured her that I had the situation completely under control. I told her that I could stop whenever I wanted to, and there was nothing to worry about. Unconvinced by my assurances, my doctor recommended that I meet with a therapist.
Although I didn’t realize it at the time, that depression assessment altered the course of my life. Up until that time, I was in complete denial that I needed assistance. I believed that everyone at school was in the same situation as me: feeling stressed out, having panic attacks over homework, being destroyed by a bad grade, and assessing their own performance so critically that it can only be defined as good or bad. I now know that living this way is not normal in any way, shape or form.
After time spent in therapy and working with a nutritionist, I have learned a lot about myself. I have generalized anxiety disorder, commonly referred to as GAD. I’ve learned that my eating disorder, perfectionism, and depression all derived from this. This diagnosis, and the assistance that came with it, were a tremendous relief. While I am still incredibly goal oriented, I have reset my expectations and allow myself to be “perfectly imperfect. I measure my success on a continuum rather than by an all or nothing standard. And I recognize that I will fail – repeatedly – and am able to be accepting of that reality. I only wish I could have attained this peace of mind years earlier.
I am now an advocate for all things mental health. After learning that 1 in 5 students is experiencing a mental health issue, I know that so many of my classmates are struggling – largely in silence and alone. I feel that if mental health diagnoses could be destigmatized, then more students would be willing to recognize that they have a mental illness and seek help. I am doing what I can to be part of the change in how teens view mental health. I am honored to be NAMI CCNS’s first-ever student ambassador. During this school year, I will be telling my story to students at local schools as part of NAMI’s “Ending the Silence” program. Next year, in college, I plan to be an active member of my university’s “NAMI on Campus” program. Or, if the university that I attend does not yet have that program in place, then I plan to establish it. I am confident that with the resources NAMI provides, we can help break down the stigma of mental illness and allow students to live their best lives.
Assisting NAMI in reaching students in need is my goal. Thanks to the help I have received, I know I will share NAMI’s joy in reaching them.
Cavan is doing all she has set out to do—and more. As her senior year moves forward and she applies to colleges, Cavan and her family see the hope that comes from being an advocate for NAMI CCNS. She is leading the way for awareness and change in mental health and is helping us end stigma. As 2019 draws to a close and you consider your year-end giving, we encourage you to give generously to NAMI CCNS. Programs such as NAMI on Campus and Ending the Silence are but two of the many programs offered that make a difference for individuals living with a mental illness, and their families.
We hope they make a difference in your town.
On behalf of the board, staff and volunteers, thank you for your support.

    From the Board Chairman

    NAMI CCNS has had a very eventful year. We have a wonderful new Executive Director, Nathaniel Ekman at our helm, and he is doing a great job. We have expanded our outreach and are reaching more families dealing with the challenges of mental illness. We are offering new programs such as Mental Health First Aid and Ending the Silence to keep up with the growing demands of our communities, while continuing to offer our signature classes Family To Family and Basics as well as support groups like Balance for Success, Stableity, and our Veterans’ Group. This would not be possible without your financial support
    and our wonderful volunteers. Our major fundraisers, the spring Gala and the Walk/Run, were a success with Evanston being a new venue for our fall event. Our fabulous volunteers have been invaluable in helping us carry out our mission to provide advocacy, education, and support for those with mental illness and their loved ones. In this complex and stressful world, NAMI CCNS is needed more
    than ever, and we are looking forward to 2020 with its challenges and opportunities to meet the needs of those individuals and families dealing with the difficulties of mental illness. Our
    donors, board, staff, and volunteers are instrumental in our successfully fulfilling our goals. Thank you for your wonderful support. We couldn’t exist without you!
