Those that came out to see the band were treated to SFTFCH's band leader and founder, from Santa Fe and the 2015 Platinum Achievement Award winner, Jerry Lopez. His legendary status in the entertainment capital of the world is on display in his hometown, Santa Fe.

Support Comprehensive Mental Health Legislation in 2015

August usually brings to mind summer barbecues and back to school shopping. For Congress it means summer recess. Congressmen will be fanned out across their states and congressional districts until the week of Sept. 7th.

While members of Congress are back home they will be participating in local radio call in shows and making community appearances at events such as congressional town halls, county fairs, and Labor Day parades. These events provide terrific opportunities for you to talk with them about issues of concern.

NAMI can use your help.
