NAMI Northern Illinois
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. What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
On a smaller scale, our affiliate, NAMI Northern Illinois serves Winnebago, Boone and Stephenson counties. Our members are families, friends, professionals, advocates and people living with mental illness. We provide education, offer support and resources, and advocate for those who need our assistance.
“NAMI Northern Illinois is dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals with
mental illness and their families through support, education, advocacy and hope.”
