Relevance of Community Connections for Holistic Wellness on Mental Health with Babu Mathew of NAMI on Beyond The Bars Radio with Rob Lohman
Babu Mathew is the President on the Board of Directors at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in Colorado. He grew up in India. Before moving to the U.S.A. in 1994, he had over 2 decades of experience in Sales &
Marketing in the Printing & Graphic Arts Industry in India. His life would change forever back in 2010, when his daughter was diagnosed of Anxiety & Depression. He had been intimately involved in supporting her journey and her path to wellness, ever since. During 2013-14, he had collaborated with the support groups of Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA). Babu found “a home” in NAMI in 2015 and ever since, has been a part of the local NAMI Family Support group. He and his wife have taken the NAMI Family-to-Family training. Babu is a certified Teacher for the NAMI Family-to-Family & Family and Friends programs and has taken the Mental Health
First Aid training, as well. For 2 years from 2014, he led a Refugee Mentoring Project from his Church in collaboration with Lutheran Family Services & Denver Rescue Mission. He has been a member of the Interfaith Network on Mental Illness (INMI) from 2015 and is very passionate about
promoting mental health awareness and support to interfaith and the South Asian communities. Babu lives in Morrison, CO with his wife of 38 years. He loves to spend quality time with his only daughter and son-in-law (who are trained “NAMI In Our Own Voice” presenters) & “grand puppy, LEVI”, who with his energy and unconditional love, is a tremendous source of
joy, peace & HEALING!
