NAMI San Diego
The National Alliance on Mental Illness in San Diego is the city’s voice on mental illness. We are part of the grass-roots, non-profit, national NAMI organization founded in 1979 by family members of people with mental illness. We are also an affiliate of NAMI California.
We have a threefold mission:
- Support people with mental illnesses and their families by helping them find coping mechanisms for their daily struggle with brain disorders.
- Educate people who have mental illness, their families, and the general public about mental illness with the goal of dispelling ignorance and stigma.
- Advocate for more research and an improved system of mental health services across the nation.
