Terry-Taggart2NAMI Pinellas is proud of our very own, Terry Taggart, for receiving this year’s Lionel Aldridge Champions Award for her 20 plus years of “exhibited courage, leadership and service on behalf of all people living with mental illness.” Terry has been the primary facilitator for our NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group, meeting weekly for over 15 years and presenter of the Consumer Perspective for over 30 CIT classes. In addition to this award, Terry has been recognized as NAMI Florida Consumer of the Year in 2008 and CIT International Consumer of the Year in 2012. We are thankful for her contribution as a great champion of NAMI support, education, and advocacy programs for consumers, the police, or legislators alike. Go Terry!
