NAMI is a grassroots, volunteer-based organization dedicated to helping everyone affected by mental health disorders. We are a resource for people living with mental illness, for family members and friends who have a loved one who is ill, for veterans and their family members, for community members and for schools, agencies, organizations and other mental health professionals.
With NAMI There is Help. There is Hope.
