The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Washington (NAMI Washington) is teaming up with Lost Lake Café & Lounge for a “Dine Out For Mental Health” 24-hour benefit event on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at Lost Lake Café & Lounge, located at 1505 10th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122. Ten percent of total sales for the entire day will go to support the work of NAMI Washington and its 23 affiliates around the state.
Lost Lake Café & Lounge is open 24/7 and located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood – and is a close cousin of The 5 Point Café in Belltown. Enjoy the 60s era vibe while savoring tasty eats from their massive menu, including traditional diner food, breakfast, burgers, and sandwiches – and much more!
One in five adults and one in ten children in America experience a serious mental health condition each year. NAMI Washington’s mission is to improve the quality of life for all those affected by mental illness. The organization does this by providing a statewide, unifying voice of advocacy and coordinating the delivery of education, support and recovery. NAMI works to increase research and eradicate the stigma and shame surrounding mental illness.
NAMI is a three-tiered organization with a national office and a state office. In Washington, there are 23 local NAMI Affiliates across the state. Working together, NAMI Washington and their Affiliates provide classes, support groups and community presentation programs at no-cost to any member of the community. NAMI offers specialized programs for schools and teachers, middle and high school students, and veterans.
