NAMI's Multicultural Outreach Program targets the mental health needs of the
African American and Hispanic/Latino communities. Many individuals may suffer needlessly
from mental disorders such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, panic/anxiety,
obsessive compulsive disorder(OCD) and bipolar disorder.
Mental illness is not uncommon and is as diverse as the people who have it.
The percentage of African Americans receiving needed care is only half that of whites
and only 24% of Hispanics/Latinos with depression and anxiety receive appropriate care
