Mobile Story and Mission N AMI Mobile is the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Our mission is to provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by a mental illness can lead better lives. NAMI members have the LIVED experience of advocating for loved ones with a serious mental illness. They understand how difficult navigating the mental health system can be. They know the stigma that is faced. As people of experience, we offer HELP and HOPE. NAMI Signature Education and Support Programs include: • NAMI Family-to-Family Education Class • NAMI Basics Online • NAMI Peer-to-Peer Education Class • NAMI Family Support Group • NAMI Connections Recovery Support Group • NAMI Family & Friends Seminar • NAMI Ending the Silence Presentation • NAMI In Our Own Voice Presentation NAMI Mobile’s annual fundraiser, NAMIWalks Mobile, supports our educational programs and outreach initiatives as well as the NAMI Mobile Care Fund, providing much needed dental, medical, education and transportation assistance to those in need right here in our community. Last year, we were able to award over $30,000 in aid. NAMI Mobile also arranges and funds special events for those in our community with serious mental illness, especially during the holiday season.
