We educate. Offered in thousands of communities across the United States throughout NAMI state organizations and NAMI affiliates, our education programs ensure hundreds of thousands of families, individuals and educators get the support and information they need.
We advocate. NAMI shapes national public policy for people with mental health conditions and their families and provides volunteer leaders with the tools, resources, and skills necessary to save programs and funding.
We listen. Our toll-free NAMI HelpLine allows us personal responses to hundreds of thousands of requests each year, providing free referrals, information, and support.
We lead. Public awareness events and activities, including Mental Illness Awareness Week and NAMIWalks, successfully fight stigma and encourage understanding.
