Mental Illness Is Not Anyone’s Fault: A Review of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) was established in 1979 and has since grown into a national foundation supporting both online and physical resources for those with mental disorders and/or their families, friends, and caregivers. NAMI.org, their website, houses a multitude of information, resources, community support, and crisis contact outlets and is a highly reliable source for anyone who would use it. Through their website alone they accomplish their four goals to educate, advocate, listen, and lead. NAMI offers support, guidance, and educational materials and opportunities, a safe space for voices to be heard, and a point of contact to the outside world when users may not know where to look or even start. It is an excellent resource and is highly recommended as a consumer health website for mental disorders and mental illness.
