FREE support groups and education for individuals with mental illness and for their families:
NAMI—National Alliance on Mental Illness—is the largest advocacy organization in the country for those living with mental illness. It began in the 1970’s as a grassroots organization with a small group of mothers who got together to help each other adjust to the challenges of caring for their adult children with mental illnesses. This small group of “NAMI Mommies” grew into a respected national organization with more than 1100 affiliates throughout the country! Our mission is to provide education, support, and advocacy for our individuals and families affected by mental illness. The vast majority of our work is done by volunteers. This allows those who need help and support from NAMI to get that help without payment. We believe cost should not be a barrier that interferes with access to education and support from others who have “lived” experiences.
