Welcome to NAMI Spokane


When the National Alliance on Mental Illness was organized in 1979, state and local affiliates immediately began springing up across the country.   NAMI Spokane was among the first, and by 1980 was promoting and providing mental health advocacy as a non-profit corporation with an office in downtown Spokane.  For over 30 years we've  been part of the  nation's largest grassroots organization dedicated to helping people open their minds and learn that mental illnesses are biological brain disorders that can be successfully managed through medical treatment and family and community support.

The NAMI network joins all of it's members and friends  as a voice of reason and  ray of hope for those whose lives have been affected by severe mental illnesses.  Our strength lies in the wonderful volunteers who staff our office, teach our courses, lead our  support groups and represent us in the community.  Our shared understanding based on personal experience allows us to gain empathy and an increased capacity for love by supporting our relatives, our friends and each other.

We are all PEERs in mental  health advocacy:  Persons of Experience Engaged in Recovery.
