You can feel confident donating to NAMI because almost 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to supporting our community, with minimal administrative overhead.

Thank you NAMI! NAMI is personal for my family. In 2010, after several encounters with CIT - law enforcement, my mom, had to 'baker act' my brother. My brother has since been diagnosed with Schizophrenia. It has been a long, difficult, road for my family. If it wasn't for the Family-to-Family training my mom received from Nami, my brother would have been lost (literally living in the woods due to extreme paranoia).

Erneshia Pinder
01:20:34
when I was the lone family member helping my older sister navigate thru challenges of getting the right diagnosis and treatment, NAMI was there to help me help her. The education I received thru NAMI helped me learn how to advocate for my sister and how to help her advocate for herselt. The support I received gave me community and a safe place to work thru the emotions I felt as a family member. NAMI also provided education and supports for my sister's diagnosis which is HUGE since she has DID which is very complex and many practitioners in her area back east won't acknowledge or treat her. NAMI saved our lives, helped us reconnect as siblings and helped us learn to live again.
