Mission Statement

NAMI-Vermont is a grassroots volunteer organization of individuals who have joined together to accomplish the following goals:

  • provide support to families and consumers coping with the problems presented by mental illness
  • educate the public and our members about severe mental illness so that perceptions change and stigma is eliminated
  • advocate for a system of adequate care in every community

Description

NAMI-Vermont is a statewide volunteer organization comprised of family members, friends, and individuals affected by mental illness. We have experienced the struggles and have joined together in membership to help ourselves and others by providing support, information, education and advocacy.

NAMI-Vermont began as a spontaneous, grassroots family movement in 1983, just six years after NAMI National was founded. NAMI-Vermont was incorporated as a state organization affiliated with NAMI in 1984, and today has 11 support groups. With a dedicated board, over one hundred volunteers, and four staff members, NAMI-Vermont provides education, advocacy and support to those in need.
