Welcome to NAMI Southern Indiana 

NAMI Southern Indiana is a grassroots organization of spouses, siblings, adult children, parents, consumers, mental health professionals and friends who have joined together for mutual support while working collectively to improve services for persons who are mentally ill. We also support public education, research, and other efforts to reduce stigma and discrimination against consumers of mental health services and their families, which will finally lead to better understanding and eventual cures for neurobiological diseases of the brain.

NAMI's Goals

  • To provide support to families coping with the problems presented by mental illness.
  • To educate the public and our members about severe mental illness so that perceptions change and stigma is eliminated.
  • To advocate for a system of adequate care in every community.
  • To increase support for research from the federal government and from private sources.
