NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is the nation's largest grassroots organization for people with mental illness and their families. Founded in 1979, NAMI has affiliates in every state and in more than 1,100 local communities across the country. NAMI recognizes that the key concepts of recovery, resiliency and support are essential to improving the wellness and quality of life of all persons affected by mental illness. NAMI members and friends work to fulfill our mission by providing support, education, and advocacy.
Our many activities include: public education and information activities, peer education and support, raising awareness and fighting stigma, and state and federal advocacy. As America's largest organization of consumers and families, NAMI stands at the forefront of supporting those whose lives have been affected by serious mental illness, and is leading the way in transforming America's mental health care system.
As an affiliate, we represent the grass roots of NAMI. From blazing trails in addressing the education and support needs of families and consumers, to advocating for access to treatment and services; from supporting remarkable advances in research, to bringing serious mental illness into the mainstream of health issues, NAMI has worked steadily for more than 25 years to truly become the Nation's Voice on Mental Illness.
