About Us

The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Montgomery County (NAMI MC) envisions a future where all people affected by mental health conditions live healthy fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. NAMI MC works to make that vision a reality by building communities of peers to provide support, education, and advocacy for all affected by mental health conditions.

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 health conditions. NAMI distinguishes itself from other mental health care providers by leveraging the valuable “lived experience” of peer volunteers, who themselves live with mental health conditions or have cared for someone living with a mental health condition. In 2019 alone, 132 trained volunteers gave 4,639 hours to deliver NAMI MC programs to families in Montgomery County. This is how NAMI MC reaches 5,659 community members with only 6 staff members and a budget of $650,000 a year.
