What is NAMI?
NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We are the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness and mental health conditions. Members of NAMI are families, friends and individuals living with these conditions.
NAMI Southwest Ohio is an affiliate of NAMI. The affiliates of NAMI deliver all of the NAMI programs, like classes and support groups. Also, NAMI Southwest Ohio gives many public and community presentations.
One in five adults experience a mental health condition in a given year. That is almost 44 million Americans! The National Institute of Mental Health reports that depression is now the leading cause of disability worldwide.
The NAMI Southwest Ohio community is here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.
