National Alliance on Mental Illness
page printed from NAMI Alaska

Our mission is fourfold:

As a support organization, we work to provide support and technical assistance to local affiliates.  We provide assistance to affiliates with networking, information, and logistics so they can provide direct support to Alaskans in need in their own community. 

As an advocacy organization, we provide a statewide voice on mental health in Alaska through our grassroots membership.  We also provide training to consumers and family members on becoming advocates. 

As an  education organization, we provide training on mental health topics, serve as a statewide clearinghouse on mental health information, and coordinate a statewide public awareness and anti-discrimination campaign. 

As a research organization, we encourage and promote public and private research on issues of importance to people facing mental illness and their families.
