Through the dedicated efforts of grassroots leaders, NAMI focuses on three cornerstones of activity that offer hope, reform and health: Support, Education, and Advocacy.

Support: Awareness and a Pathway to Recovery

NAMI’s support and public education efforts are focused on offering individuals and the community,  resources and information about mental illness through a variety of activities, including:

Education: The Face and Voice of Mental Illness

NAMI CCNS offers signature programs to empower you with knowledge, resources, a sense of community, and strategies.
