Image How We Can Help 


You, your adult son or daughter has just been diagnosed with a mental illness — depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder, for instance. How will this impact your family dynamics?

Or your child has just been diagnosed.  What about communicating with teachers, school counselors, and administrators?

Now what?  Where do you turn for help?  Are there some important help resources in the area that you don’t know about?

NAMI Lake County provides mutual support, education, information and resources for all those affected by the challenges of living with serious brain disorders.

NAMI Lake County Resource and HelpLine


When consumers and family members need a definition of bipolar disorder, information about a medication's side effects, or advice on how to work with an adult sibling who declines treatment, our staff who power the free NAMI Lake County Resource and HelpLine and volunteer family and consumer members are on the line—with facts, figures, and empathy to spare.

Available during business hours, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm
email us at

Or, if you like to speak with someone in person, call 440-639-1200.
All callers will receive a response within one business day.
