Hurricane Katrina

NAMI Family and Consumer Support

With thousands of displaced Gulf Coast residents relocated to Texas, NAMI Texas and their affiliates are stepping up to ensure that the needs of NAMI families are met. NAMI Texas and local affiliates in Texas have been asked by the Department of State Health Services to step up and to be part of the planned response that Texas is just beginning to implement.

On the front-line in every community coordinating the response will be the local community mental health centers in Texas. NAMI recognizes that it is our dedicated grassroots leaders that provide the unique support and connection that make NAMI the organization it is.

Additionally, NAMI organizations and affiliates in other states are available to assist with providing information and support to those in need.
