National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City cover
Mission The National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City (NAMI-NYC) helps families and individuals affected by mental illness build better lives through education, support, and advocacy.

Education
NAMI’s guiding principle is “families helping families.” Towards that end, we offer free classes throughout the year: Family-to-Family, Peer-to-Peer, Hope for Recovery, NAMI Basics, and Homefront courses.

Support
We provide nearly 30 ongoing support groups for people living with mental illness and for their family members. Groups are facilitated by trained peer volunteers.

Advocacy
We work closely with NAMI National and NAMI-New York State to advocate for improved services for people with mental illness and their families, health insurance parity, the allocation of more resources for research into neurobiological disorders and comprehensive, accessible treatment options. Our staff and volunteers provide professional testimony; sit on task forces, boards and commissions; and collaborate with other advocacy organi­zations.

Anti-Stigma
Our national #IWILLLISTEN campaign is dedicated to increas­ing mental health awareness and encouraging family members and peers to listen to the experiences of individuals living with mental illness without judgement.
Description The National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City (NAMI-NYC Metro) is a support, education, and advocacy organization for the mental health community. We serve families and individuals whose lives are affected by mental illness. Whether you have a family member with schizophrenia or are coping with depression, we have a program for you.
