National Alliance on Mental Illness North Central Massachusetts, Inc. is a non-profit grass roots organization working on behalf of the mentally ill and their families.

We offer free classes for family members covering topics such as managing crises, communicating effectively, reviewing common medications and understanding the biology of mental illness, to name a few.

We offer free support groups - one for family members who interact with those affected and a separate "consumers" group, where those living with mental illness can find peer support.

Mental Illness takes many forms: depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders – just to name a few.

Mental illnesses are treatable and many consumers are active and productive members or our communities. There is help available. Join with us to get the word out, help stamp out stigma, educate the public and advocate for those living with a mental illness and their families.
