"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship"
                                                        Louisa Mae Alcott


NAMI offers an array of peer education and training programs and services
for people with a mental illness, family members, school professionals, providers, and the general public.
NAMI's education and support programs provide relevant information,
valuable insight, and the opportunity to engage in support networks.

These programs draw on the lived experience of mental health consumers
and family members who have learned to live well with their illnesses and have been
extensively trained to help others, as well as the expertise of mental health professionals and educators.

Whether you are a person with a mental illness, a family member,
a school professional, provider, or a member of the general public, there is a NAMI education or support
program to help you learn more about mental illnesses, develop coping strategies, or find the support you need.
