As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The mission of NAMI Metropolitan Houston is to improve the lives of individuals living with a mental illness and their families through support, education and advocacy.
NAMI Greater Houston is a non-profit organization established in 1988 to address the increasing need for families and persons affected by mental illness to have a powerful voice in the mental health community.
NAMI Greater Houston provides FREE education programs, peer support groups and advocacy to enable families and consumers to become more effective self advocates.
NAMI Greater Houston actively promotes the development of and access to community mental health programs and services. We also work to improve access to services, increase opportunities for recovery, reduce stigma and discrimination and increase public understanding of mental illness. Our peer-run resource center - NAMI S.E.A. (Support, Education and Advocacy) Center, gives those affected by mental illness a quiet place to find helpful recovery tools.
If you or someone in your family is living with a mental illness, we have much in common.
Join with us in the community of hope we have found through NAMI Greater Houston’s circle of support, education, and advocacy.
