NATIONAL ALLIANCE ON MENTAL ILLNESS (NAMI)

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, an alliance of more than 600 local affiliates works in our community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need. This is the largest, grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for millions of Americans affected by mental illness, many in our own community. This wonderful organization believes a diverse, inclusive and equitable alliance is one where all employees, volunteers and members – regardless of gender, race, gender identify, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, education, disability, veteran status or other dimension of diversity – feel valued and respected. NAMI’s funding comes from a variety of sources, a majority of which comes from individual donors and contributors, such as The Society, and the remainder is financed by a variety of sources including corporate sponsorships, foundations, dues, grants, events, and other partnerships.
