Description of Organization and Service Provided

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a national network of more than 250,000 members with affiliate chapters in all 50 states.  We work to improve the lives of persons affected by severe mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder or manic depression, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depressive, anxiety and panic disorders. 

Our goal is to enable each individual with a mental illness (children, adolescents, or adults) to live the best life possible.  Most of us have a relative or friend that has a mental illness, or we are living with one ourselves.  We offer mutual support to one another.  We educate ourselves and the public, promote better treatment and support services, and advocate for research into the causes and treatment of these illnesses.
