Let’s talk about NAMI!
Hey, what’s NAMI?
NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community for hope for all of those in need.
NAMI is the foundation for hundreds of NAMI State Organizations, NAMI Affiliates and volunteer leaders who work in local communities across the country to raise awareness and provide essential and free education, advocacy and support group programs.

What type of Support Groups do they have?
NAMI offers an array of support and education programs that help build better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
NAMI Connection is the “general” support group for all people diagnosed with any mental illness to come and discuss each other’s experiences and coping strategies.
