Advocates for mental health patients across Kentucky were the focus of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Kentucky’s rally Wednesday in the Capitol Rotunda.

Former Kentucky state Sen. Alice Forgy-Kerr, a longtime supporter of mental health causes in the General Assembly, was presented with an award from NAMI Kentucky by Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman, as was Dr. Sheila Schuster, faculty member at the University of Louisville, longtime practicing psychologist and legislative liaison for the Kentucky Psychological Association.
