Mission Statement

Increase awareness and advocate for families and persons with mental health illnesses: envisioning prevention, education and training as the primary pathways to better services and a healthier community.

Description

Founded in 1979, the nonprofit organization, NAMI has more that 1,000 State/Local Affiliates who seek equitable services for people with mental illnesses, which are known to be physical brain disorders. Working on the national, state, and local levels, NAMI provides education about brain disorders, supports increased funding research, and advocates for adequate health insurance, housing, rehabilitation, and jobs for people with psychiatric illnesses, as well as providing resources.

Recent advances in medical research, treatment, and recovery now enable individuals with mental disorders, such as depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety and other mood disorders to lead productive lives. Within the community, organized efforts are still needed. NAMI St. Tammany works to further this goal.
