NAMI North Carolina statement about the sale of Dorothea Dix property

NAMI North Carolina was invited by the Department of Health and Human Services to participate in the ceremony of the initial signing over of the Dorthea Dix property to the City of Raleigh. Attendance included DHHS administration, Governor McCrory’s cabinet and the Governor, City of Raleigh staff and Mayor McFarlane, many other advocacy organizations, as well as other interested parties. This event was the second step in the process to officially deed the property over to the city. This event was one was a celebration and looking to the future as this property will serve as a destination park for the city. We, however, have and will continue to publically grieve this loss and we need the leaders of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Governor to know that this loss is one we do not take lightly.

To us, the land was a public commitment by both the state and federal government to ensure services for those living with mental illness were available. We are an organization of families, consumers, and advocates who struggle daily with the consequences of psychiatric disorders and diseases. We are the community who came to Dix in the past for care and to find hope. Many who are familiar with the work of NAMI NC know that the loss of the Dix property was quite devastating to our community.

Our ask is two-fold:

  1. First, we seek a public ceremony to honor the legacy of Dorthea Dix as well as the many lives that have been directly affected by mental illness in our state.
  2. Second, we seek assurance from both the state and the City of Raleigh that there will be protections for the cemetery as well a memorial erected on the property.

We acknowledge the guarantee made by the Governor and DHHS to honor the legacy of Dorothea Dix. NAMI NC’s commitment is to monitor and hold the Governor and DHHS to their publically stated commitment to ensure the proceeds will go to the Mental Health Trust Fund and that those funds will be used for mental health services.
