Welcome to Downers Grove Rotary

Tuesday, August 16, 2022
Geri Kerger, Executive Director of NAMI DuPage, started her career as a lawyer.  When the first mental health court in Illinois was established in DuPage County in 2003, Geri started to work with families who were advocating for treatment versus jail-time for mentally ill defendants.  NAMI DuPage was started by families in 1985 and has grown to become the largest NAMI affiliate and one of the most innovative. 

Their mission is to provide support, advocacy and education in order to improve the quality of life of individuals with mental illnesses and their families.  One of NAMI DuPage's innovations, which is now rolled out across the globe, is Ending the Silence - providing mental health and education to middle & high school students, parents & school staff.
