NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
NAMI provides advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.
Advocate at the county, state and national levels for non-discriminatory access to quality healthcare, housing, education and employment for people living with a mental health condition.
- Educate the public about mental health conditions.
- Work to eliminate the stigma of mental health conditions.
- Advocate for increased funding for research into the causes and treatment of mental health conditions.
Our vision is to create a culture where open disclosure of a mental health condition does not have negative consequences in the community, the schools and in the workplace. We continue to seek better treatment for mental illnesses and to eliminate the stigma associated with them. Our programs are a primary source of assistance to people of all cultural and economic backgrounds.
Diversity, Equity And Inclusion
At NAMI, we believe a diverse, inclusive and equitable organization (or Alliance) is one where all employees, volunteers and members — regardless of gender, race, gender identity, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, education, disability, veteran status or other dimension of diversity — feel valued and respected.
We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and to providing equal opportunity for employment, participation and advancement in all programs and worksites.
