The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a grassroots organization established in 1979 dedicated to providing support, education and advocacy for anyone affected by persistent, biologically based brain disorders (mental illnesses) like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, and other chronic disorders.

There are 220,000 NAMI members nationwide with 1100 affiliates throughout the country. NAMI Medina County is an affiliate of NAMI Ohio. There are approximately 50 local affiliates in Ohio.

Brain disorders are real diseases causing disturbances in feeling, relating or thinking. These illnesses do not discriminate, affecting people of all ages, races, cultures and socioeconomic classes.

One out of every four families in America has a member who suffers from a serious mental illness. Two out of every 100 young adults will be affected by serious brain diseases between the ages of 18 and 30.
