About Courtney Lawson

 

What do you bring to NAMI?

Because of my experience as a person living with Bipolar Disorder, I have a strong vision for NAMI SE MN and commitment to sharing the “real story” about mental illness: that recovery is not only possible, but we’re surrounded by it every day.

What do you love about working here?

I love that my work is hardly work. My job is a blend of learning, creating and challenging, which gets my inner social justice fighter fired up every day!

What's something interesting about you?

I started taking drum lessons last fall at age 38 (so much fun for someone who loves making noise) and am training for my first 50K trail run this summer.
