May is Mental Health Awareness Month!
Help NAMI spread the word through awareness, support, and advocacy activities. Share awareness information and graphics for #MHAM throughout the month of May. Get involved for mental health. We are stronger together.

The NAMI National Convention is one of the largest community gatherings of mental health advocates in the United States. This virtual conference is an extraordinary opportunity to raise awareness and bring resources and solutions to the mental health community both nationally and globally.

We will be resuming our NAMI Connection Support Group soon (date to be announced). NAMI Connection is a free, peer-led support group for any adult with a mental health condition. Visit our website to learn more about NAMI Connection and get updates on times and location.

We will be starting a Family-to-Family Class in June (date to be announced). Family-to-Family is a free, eight-session educational program for family and friends of people with mental health conditions. Please visit our website to learn more about NAMI Family-to-Family and get added to our interest list for our next class.
