About NAMI Southwest Washington
2500 Main Street, Suite 120, Vancouver, WA 98660, US
NAMI SW WA is dedicated to helping all people affected by mental illness through education, support, and advocacy. Our service area is Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties in Washington State with offices in Vancouver and Longview. Throughout our mission, we provide mental health programs and groups that are not accessible elsewhere for individuals and families affected by mental health challenges through education, support, and advocacy.
NAMI SW WA is a primarily volunteer organization that provides education, support, and advocacy for individuals who live with brain disorders, other mental health diagnoses, and for the people who love and care for them. In 2016, we served over 6000 people in Southwest Washington. These services include:
- Support groups
- Community conversation events
- Peer-led classes for families and individuals
- Anti-stigma campaigns
- Judicial advocacy
- Monthly newsletters
- Law enforcement crisis and provider training
- Information resources
All programs, services, and events are offered at no-cost to participants because the population we serve often lives at or below the poverty levels. Our programs for family members are unique services and we are considered to be the representative voice for families in our community that have a loved one with a mental disorder. We currently participate in a Walk for mental illness each year and do other smaller fundraisers to support our work in the community.
