About Nami and Yana

Together, their mission is to improve the lives of individuals, families and caregivers on their journey to mental wellness. At YANA Sarasota all programs are FREE and they welcome anyone experiencing mental health challenges to a safe, supportive environment of belonging. Individuals are accepted and respected, can make friends, develop life-affirming skills and work towards recovery and wellness! 

Wait until you see these before and after! This is one of our BIGGEST projects so far!! Meet the members and staff of YANA and NAMI! 

We wanted to show support for this important mission and visited YANA to find out how we could help! After hearing their Wishlist, we surprised them with a zen area for yoga, a fully sustainable vegetable and herb garden, An all new Grill and chill station with games, and plenty of places to relax and meditate. The lanai has also been transformed into a comfortable group setting where music can be played, groups can meet, and everyone can enjoy connecting with nature! Each year, millions of people face the reality of living with a mental illness. NAMI and YANA play a vital role in providing advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.
