“NAMI is thrilled to be a partner with FOX Sports,” NAMI Executive Director Mary Giliberti said. “Its support will broaden public awareness of mental health conditions and make a difference in helping millions of Americans. It will especially help young adults, including athletes, who often do not get help early, even though 75 percent of cases of mental illness appear by age 25.”
