Find Help, Find Hope!

Mental Illness Awareness Week 2017

During Mental Illness Awareness Week on Oct. 1-7, 2017, NAMI and participants across the country are raising awareness of mental illness. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.
