We invite you to join our NAMI-PA Delaware County Chapter.  Our membership is open to families and friends of loved ones with a mental illness, to those who have an illness, to interested professionals, and to others in the community.

Your membership is important - whether or not you can attend our meetings or be an active member.  Since we are an advocacy group for persons with mental illness, we frequently work with politicians in an effort to realize funding for programs that can benefit our members.  County, state, and national legislators consider only official dues-paying members in determining the size and power of an organization.
