Andrew Schmidt - NAMI-NYC

Andrew Schmidt

I’m thrilled to be a part of the NAMI running team. I’m a practicing psychotherapist for 20+ years and have been dedicated to helping people struggling with mental health issues. Stigma associated with mental illness only makes treating it that much harder. I’m running with NAMI to help raise awareness and break down barriers to access care. I’ve been a runner since high school – although at a much slower pace these days! And running with NAMI helps me unite two of my greatest passions in life – fighting mental illness and running. Please help support me on this important journey.
