The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Montgomery County (NAMI MC) envisions a community where all persons affected by mental illness experience resiliency, recovery, acceptance, and wellness. NAMI MC works to make that vision a reality by providing comprehensive support, education, advocacy, and public awareness to promote recovery, so that all individuals and families affected by mental illn...ess can build better lives.
Since 1978 NAMI MC has been a local affiliate of our Nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI distinguishes itself from other mental health care providers by leveraging the valuable “lived experience” of volunteers, who themselves live with mental illness or have cared for someone living with mental illness. In 2016 alone, 332 trained volunteers gave 8,930 hours to deliver NAMI MC programs to families in Montgomery County. This is how NAMI MC reaches 18,192 community members with only 5 staff members and $500,000 a year.
