NAMIGlendale is a proud affiliate of the

National Alliance on Mental Illness, NAMI.

Our Mission is to provide advocacy, education and support for those affected by serious mental illness, their friends, loved ones, and families with special responsibility to the Greater Glendale Area.

 We Recognize that mental illnesses are brain disorders, medical conditions from which recovery is possible.  The trauma of mental illness directly impacts the family, friends and loved ones of the person who has an illness, and these people, too, need help  and can play a pivotal supporting role in an individualís recovery.

Our Goal is to ensure that every person who has a mental illness has adequate access to medical care, medications, therapy, and a supportive community to assist them on their journey to recovery.

IMPORTANT SUPPORT GROUP LOCATION CHANGE:       Our Tuesday Evening Family Support Group will return to its home base of operations, Didi Hirsch, Glendale, (540 E Colorado St, Glendale, CA 91205) beginning with the first meeting in December.  Our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the First Presbyterian Church of Burbank which has sheltered us in our time of need.  Tuesday Family Support will continue to meet at First Presbyterian  (521 E. Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA 91501) through the end of November. 

Our NAMI Programs:

For family members, loved ones, and friends of those who have a mental illness:  Family Support Group, Family to Family Education Class, and Basics Education Class

For persons who have a mental illness:   Connections Support Group, Peer to Peer Education Class, and In Our Own Voice

For everyone:  NAMI-Walks

In addition to the above programs, we do community outreach; compile and publish lists of useful and informative resources; publicize our own and othersí related public events; provide access to regional advocacy and leadership trainings; chime in on public policy debates; and fight stigma against those with brain disorders.  NAMI Glendale is open to everyone concerned about the issues of mental illness and the personal and social impacts, and all our programs are always free.
