Save Pine Tree Gardens Donations

NAMI Yolo County is partnering with the Save Pine Tree Gardens Committee to raise funds for the long-term sustainability and short-term needs of the Pine Tree Gardens (PTG) adult residential facilities in Davis, CA. These two board and care residences are the only homes in Yolo County for people with serious and persistent mental illness and are a highly-valued community resource. The Moyle family would be honored if you choose to donate to the fund in honor of Noah. In coordination with the Save Pine Tree Gardens Committee, NAMI Yolo County will manage donations to the following two Pine Tree Gardens Sustainability Fund accounts:

Permanent Account – NAMI-Yolo will manage the Permanent Account for long-term growth. Interest earned on the account will provide funding to Pine Tree Gardens in perpetuity.

Short-Term Needs Account – NAMI-Yolo will manage the Short-Term Needs Account to address immediate needs at Pine Tree Gardens, which may include grants for food and supplies, support for independent living or other assistance programs, or facility improvements.

Please mail checks to NAMI-Yolo, P.O. Box 447, Davis, CA 95617. Make checks out to NAMI-Yolo and write “Pine Tree Gardens Sustainability Fund” in the memo line. You may also note in the memo whether you wish to dedicate the donation to the “permanent account” or “short-term account” of the Pine Tree Gardens Sustainability Fund.

About Anosognosia and I Am Not Sick I Don’t Need Help!

When someone rejects a diagnosis of mental illness, it’s tempting to say that he’s “in denial.” But someone with acute mental illness may not be thinking clearly enough to consciously choose denial. They may instead be experiencing “lack of insight” or “lack of awareness.” The formal medical term for this medical condition is anosognosia, from the Greek meaning “to not know a disease.”
