Does someone you love have a mental illness?

Join us for our free NAMI family support groups for family members, friends, and concerned others of a person with mental illness.

Founded in 1979, NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Illness, is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness.  NAMI has over 1100 affiliates in communities across the country who engage in advocacy, research, support, and education.
