Miss International 2015, Teams with ‘Behind the Mask: My Naked Truth’


Elise Banks has joined our efforts to spread the word and promote awareness on mental health issues. Currently the former Miss International is ambassador for NAMI Dallas. In a recent interview, she shared of her commitment to helping others cope with mental illness, “The minority outreach is extremely important to me,” Banks expressed in a recent interview at the 2016 National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) National Convention. She added, “Historically, minorities are least likely to get help for mental or emotional reasons, and within that, African American men. It’s even less common for them to reach out.”
