Education Support Advocacy
NAMI Northern Illinois is a grass, self help, non-profit organization in Northern Illinois, affiliated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, (NAMI and NAMI Illinois). We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for persons with severe mental illness and their families through education, support and advocacy.
NAMI Northern Illinois promises to build better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
Because mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and one in 10 children, or 60 million Americans. NAMI Northern Illinois will work every day to save every life.
Thousands of members and supporters, families, individuals, and friends, are the face and the voice of the NAMI movement. They come together to celebrate mental illness recovery and honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness. They combat stigma, promote awareness, and advocate for others.
NAMI Northern Illinois stays focused on educating Americans about mental illness. NAMI is the foundation for hundreds of NAMI State Organizations, NAMI Affiliates, and volunteer leaders who work in local communities across the country. They raise awareness and provide essential and free education, advocacy and support group programs for people living with mental illness. They offer access to treatment to those in need.
