Who NAMI Is

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, they are an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates and 48 State Organizations who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.

About NAMI’s Hearts+Minds Program

NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, an alliance of more than 650 local affiliates who have advocated for those affected by mental illness since 1979. It has always been a priority that the latest research is built into their education and support programs, and this has never been more critical.

Nearly 1 in 5 adults in the United States experiences mental illness, and less than half received mental health services in the last year. Those affected by mental illness also suffer physical comorbidities at alarming rates, including a 40% higher risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Examples of these diseases are evident in rates of obesity and diabetes that significantly exceed those of the general population. Many of these conditions are directly linked to mental illness organically, or via medication side-effects. They are also often linked to unhealthy eating choices, or smoking, drinking alcohol, or other substance abuse. These factors combine to result in a reduced lifespan of 10-20 years compared to the general population.

There is a clear and critical need for individuals with mental health diagnoses to care for their physical health, and a wealth of research supporting the importance of this health intersection. It’s time to correct the idea that mental and physical health are separate conditions: NAMI believes that mental health is physical health.

Their suite of educational resources is designed to empower people to improve their mental health symptoms as they improve their physical health. These resources will share effective ways to manage physical effects of mental illness and the side effects of medication, as well as incorporate education on nutrition and physical activity. The tools provided will encourage individuals to actively improve their health and obtain a greater sense of control over their wellbeing.

Changing the conversation on the intersection of mental health and physical health also serves to reduce stigma. The concept of improving physical health and wellness is universal and demonstrates yet again that those managing mental illness are not alone.
