Welcome to my personal fundraising page for NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness! This is a page honoring the great work by Dr. Jospeh Parks, MD. Dr. Parks is serving as Director of MOHealthNET (Missouri's Medicaid program), until his retirement at the end of 2016. Previously he served as the Director of the Missouri Institute of Mental Health, and held numerous other provisions in leadership in Missouri.
A passionate advocate for mental health, and the vulnerable in Missouri, Dr. Parks also practices psychiatry on an outpatient basis at Family Health Center, a community health center established to expand services to uninsured and underinsured patients in the Columbia area.
NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of all those affected by mental illness. NAMI provides education, support, advocacy and awareness so that we all live better lives.
This fundraising page was created by Timothy McBride (Chair of the MOHealthNET Oversight Committee) to honor Dr. Parks, and because NAMI, and the work they do, is very important. Donating through this page is easy, fast and secure.
NAMI and appreciates your donation. Thank you so much for your support.
