Mission Statement

Started in 1985, NAMI Glendale’s no-cost support groups, education classes, and community presentations provide welcoming spaces of support for all those affected by mental illness. We connect individuals to an empathetic community based on their shared lived experiences, and offer hope that recovery is possible. NAMI Glendale is a chapter of NAMI Greater Los Angeles County, and a full affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Description

NAMI Glendale proudly serves Northeast Los Angeles by providing free education, advocacy, support, and leadership opportunities to anyone whose life has been effected by mental illness.

  • We educate. NAMI Glendale offers education courses for both those living with a diagnosis (Peer-to-Peer) and those who have a loved one with a diagnosis (Family-to-Family, Familia-a-Familia, and Basics): NAMIGlendale.org/Classes
  • We support. NAMI Glendale offers regular support group meetings both for those living with a diagnosis (Connections) as well as for those who have a loved one living with a diagnosis (Family Support Group): NAMIGlendale.org/Support-Groups

  • We advocate. NAMI Glendale works to shape national, state, and local public policy for people with mental illness and their families by providing our volunteers with the necessary tools, resources, and skills: NAMIGlendale.org/Advocacy
  • We lead. NAMI Glendale engages in community public awareness events and activities in order to fight stigma, encourage understanding, and spread the word about mental health.
