National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community for hope for all of those in need.
NAMI is the foundation for hundreds of NAMI State Organizations, NAMI Affiliates and volunteer leaders who work in local communities across the country to raise awareness and provide essential and free education, advocacy and support group programs.
I am a member of NAMI and will be attending my first support group this week in Sacramento. I am looking forward to it and will update you with my weekly support group posts. You can become a member for NAMI as well by donating $35. They have a list of services, treatments and support groups in your county. You can follow their updates on FB as well.
