Joyu Lee - NAMI-NYC

Joyu Lee


My name is Joyu Lee (she/her), and I am the owner of Music and Your Mind, LLC, and a founding member of Vida Strings. I am a Senior Therapist at UNC Health in Chapel Hill, NC, and primarily work with teens and young adults with eating disorders, anxiety and depression, and crisis intervention. I provide re-educative, insight building music psychotherapy sessions for groups and individuals on a daily basis. I believe that there is no health without mental health, and I have been working as a mental health therapist in various mental health settings (inpatient, outpatient, and private practice) for the past 8 years. I chose NAMI-NYC as my fundraising charity for the NYC Marathon 2022 in hope to raise more awareness about mental health care, and to encourage people to have more conversations about WHY accessibility to mental health resources is so important. I am dedicated to be a strong advocate for NAMI-NYC’s mission throughout 4+ months of training for my second NYC marathon!
