Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) – Kaylan Rose Campbell lost her life as a result of post-partum depression. As a way of celebrating her life and raising awareness for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, family and supporters gather on what would be her birthday to go bowling wearing tutu's in her memory.

Kaylan's family and NAMI held the bowling event Wednesday at Freeway Bowl. Along with celebrating Kaylan’s life the main goal of the night was to raise money for NAMI and to let those who struggle with mental illness know that there is support for them.

The first week in October is Mental Illness Awareness week. Starting this August NAMI has both family to family, and peer to peer education programs beginning.

All of NAMI’s programs are free which is another reason fundraising is so important.
