NAMI Tallahassee is the local affiliate of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) serving Leon and surrounding counties.  Founded in 1979, NAMI has become the nation’s leading voice on mental illness. NAMI includes over 1,200 affiliates in every state who join together to meet the NAMI mission through support, advocacy, education, and research for people with mental illness, their families and friends.

The affiliate is supportive of local efforts and seeks to publicize information deemed supportive of our mental health community through this website. Without staff or office space, NAMI-Tallahassee continues to serve our community through the efforts of our dedicated volunteers.
