NAMI's mission is to educate, support and advocate for those who live with mental illness, and their families. It accomplishes this mission through a peer based structure in which experienced and NAMI trained family members and consumers help others to manage through the complexities and stresses of mental illness.
Outreach, support groups, education and local community connectivity are the hallmarks of NAMI. NAMI is the
mental health bridge in its community as its mission is to connect all the mental health stakeholders to ensure optimal recovery outcomes.
