ROCHESTER, Minn.- A local health organization has raised more than $60,000 to support suicide prevention programs.
The national alliance on mental illness or NAMI has an office based in Rochester.
It’s an organization that helps those affected by mental illness.
Today, they are cashing in on $61,000 in donations for suicide prevention programs.
Courtney Lawson is the groups executive director.
She says having a prevention program is critical.

“You're not alone that there's someone to talk to. That there is support available in whatever way you want to access that,” says Lawson.
NAMI is looking into adding additional suicide intervention and prevention programs within the next year.
