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 , 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  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, each other.

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