WHO WE ARE
NAMI Martin County is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
NAMI Martin County exists to support, educate and advocate in areas related to mental illness and mental health. We support one another in navigating the challenges of living with a mental illness or caring for and about someone who is living with mental illness. We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization, and we encourage others to join with us in working to increase community awareness of the myriad impacts of mental illness, in rejecting and fighting the stigma that too often prevents people from asking for and receiving needed help and support, and in advocating for quality, affordable and accessible mental health services for all residents of Martin County and surrounding areas and for supportive legislation.
NAMI Family & Friends Support Group
We host a twice-monthly NAMI Family & Friends Support Group that is open to all who have a family member or close friend living with mental illness, and we welcome you to join us. You are not alone! We meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday evenings of each month. (See our Events Page for details)
Recovery Support Groups for Peers
Our NAMI Connection Recovery Support Groups for Peers meet every Wednesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:30pm. (See our Events Page for details)

While we encourage you to become a member of NAMI, and the low membership fees do help to support our local affiliate’s efforts, membership is not required in order to participate with our local group.
The national organization website at NAMI.org offers a plethora of educational, advocacy and support information and tools, and we encourage you to make use of these resources. In particular, many people find the “Learn More” section on Mental Health Conditions to be extremely valuable.
We welcome you to join us.

Promote community support programs for consumers and families. To our community, NAMI offers knowledge and support to ease trauma and help in dealing with the stigma that goes along with mental illness.
