NAMI Tallahassee is a nonprofit organization that provides support, education, and advocacy throughout the Leon County area on behalf of individuals and families affected by mental illness.
NAMI Tallahassee is the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization. Our programs are facilitated by nationally trained volunteers with lived experience as both individuals living with mental illnesses and their family members and friends. Our programs are offered at no charge to the public. NAMI's flagship education offering, Family to Family, is listed with the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as an evidence-based best practice, and all other signature programs are based on the Family to Family format. We are volunteer-run, with no paid staff. We have been named Florida Volunteer Affiliate of the Year by NAMI Florida in 2018 and 2020, and 1st runner-up for the same honor in 2019. NAMI Tallahassee sits on the Mental Health Council of the Big Bend and is a member of the Florida Mental Health Advocacy Coalition, a statewide advocacy partnership between NAMI Florida and Mental Health America.
