Your Journey

If you or someone you know is struggling, you are not alone. There are many supports, services and treatment options that may help. A change in behavior or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored.

Individuals with Mental Illness

Every year people overcome the challenges of mental illness to do the things they enjoy. Through developing and following a treatment plan and effective coping strategies, you can dramatically reduce many of your symptoms.

Family Members and Caregivers

Family members and caregivers often play a large role in helping and supporting individuals with a mental illness. Whether you’re providing a lot of assistance or very little, the information here can help you better understand the issues that you might face.

Kids, Teens and Young Adults

One of NAMI’s main goals is to ensure that people get help early. Since mental health conditions typically begin during childhood, adolescence or young adulthood, we have compiled essential information and resources intended to help young people get the mental health support they need.

Veterans & Active Duty

As a military service member or veteran, there are specific questions that you may ask, concerning treatment resources, disclosure and staying healthy during the transition to civilian life.

Identity and Cultural Dimensions

A person’s beliefs, norms, values and language affect how we perceive and experience mental health conditions. Knowing about research, mental health perspectives and challenges specific to your community can help you get better treatment. 

Frontline Professionals

Frontline professionals face many challenges in their day-to-day work life. From the pressure of making sure people get the help and care they need to working long shifts — health care and public safety are stressful fields of work.
