Our mission is mental health


We offer an array of peer education and training programs, initiatives and services for individuals, family members, health care providers and the general public. NAMI and volunteer grassroots leaders are committed to education as the pathway to recovery, empowerment and wellness


Our support and public education efforts are focused on educating America about mental illness, offering resources to those in need, and insisting that mental illness become a high national priority. Mental illness affects one in four families. Treatment works, but only half of people living with mental illness receive treatment.


NAMI is recognized as the preeminent voice on Capitol Hill and in state houses across the country for the millions of Americans living with serious mental illness. Our advocates have fought for policy changes that raise the bar on mental illness care and promote treatment and research on par with other illnesses
