Helen Walkerly

I would like to share what MOCA has done for me. First, I want to share my background. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder two years ago. I kept to myself for one and a half years. I am now finding the support I need from MOCA House. I started out small by attending the Monday night support group. I then gradually started coming on Fridays for lunch. It has provided me a place to share my love for baking by bringing a dessert to share with everyone. The staff and peers all enjoy lunch together along with playing games. The joy I have received from MOCA has given me a purpose to continue in my recovery and to help others in sharing my story.


MOCA House has helped me a lot by giving me the support that I need. I have learned so much about my mental illness. The stuff that I learned has helped me in my recovery. If it wasn’t for MOCA House I would be in a very bad state of mind and not even know why. I wouldn’t have the knowledge of mental illness if it wasn’t for MOCA House. I would refer anybody that has a mental illness or wants to learn about how to take care of someone with a mental illness to come to NAMI/MOCA.
