Welcome to the NAMI South King County Website

NAMI South King County is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).  Our members include families, friends, and people with brain disorders such as schizophrenia, schizo-affective, bipolar disorder (manic depression), major (clinical) depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and general anxiety disorder.

We sponsor free support groups and education programs, and advocate for improvements to our mental health delivery systems in terms of access to care, standards of care, recovery, housing, jobs, and rehabilitation.

We welcome new members and invite you to join us at one of our support groups or other regularly planned events.
