NAMI of Delaware and Morrow Counties
Locally the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) works in Delaware and Morrow Counties to improve the quality of life and ensure dignity and respect for persons with serious mental illness.
NAMI offers support to their families and close friends. By educating the public about mental illness, working to eliminate the stigma of mental illness, and advocating for increased funding for research into the causes and treatment of mental illness they envision a future where mental illness will no longer thwart a person’s fulfillment of their potential.
Volunteers help NAMI connect with people as they share their stories and experiences.
