Learn about the National Alliance on Mental Illness

Do you or someone you love have a mental illness? Come learn more and get support at an exploratory meeting to create a chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The meeting will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at 10 a.m. in the meeting room at Hood River Library. At the meeting, participants will discuss whether there’s interest in forming a chapter of the national mental illness support network.

NAMI was created by family members of those with mental illness. Family members got together to support each other and learn to better help their loved ones. Since being formed in 1979, NAMI has expanded its scope to provide support for family members and the mentally ill alike. They educate, support, and advocate about mental illness.
