 Our Mission

NAMI Hunterdon is a county based nonprofit organization of volunteers who are dedicated to improving the lives of all individuals affected by mental illness through the use of Education, Support, and Public Awareness.


NAMI Hunterdon was founded in 1990 by families with mentally ill sons and daughters as a mutual support, advocacy, and awareness organization. The founding members realized the goal of establishing supportive housing for adults suffering with mental illness who could live independently. NAMI Hunterdon has grown into an organization which reflects the participation of all the stakeholders in Hunterdon's mental health community.
Voices Together NAMI Hunterdon is part of a state and national NAMI network which seeks to improve the quality of mental health treatment, residential and support services that will benefit persons with mental illness and their families. With more than 220,000 volunteers nationwide, we are striving to improve the lives of everyone touched by mental illness.
Awareness activities, newsletters, and conferences provide information about research and available treatments. Our educational efforts help government officials, legislators, service providers, and the public understand mental illness from both the families' and the individual's perspectives.
When one member in the family suffers from a serious mental illness, all family members are affected. In our local NAMI group, caring family members and consumers help one another learn to cope with a loved one's illness. They find emotional support to sustain and help them through times of crisis.

Ending Stigma

For many years, people suffering from mental illnesses and their families were blamed and stigmatized because the illness was not understood. During the last 10 years, research has firmly established that serious mental illnesses are due to biological-based chemical imbalances of the brain. We work with the NJ Governor’s Anti-Stigma Task Force to eliminate this unjust stigma by developing/participating in programs to enlighten the community.
