Following the release of the Fiscal Year 2018 federal appropriations package, NAMI is extremely grateful for the increased investments in mental health services and supports.

NAMI Celebrates Mental Health Victories in Federal Funding Billing
In recent days, there has been a lot of rhetoric by the President and the NRA about "crazy people" and a desire to return to the days of the "institutions." These comments reinforce inaccurate and negative stereotypes and create barriers to having real conversations about how to improve the mental health services that lead to recovery and participation in American society by people experiencing mental health conditions.
"My mental illness began when I was 14 years old. It was a scary time for both me and my family. I didn't know what was happening to me or that what was happening was unusual. Meeting other people with similar issues has helped me better understand and cope with my illness."
Diagnosis: Schizoaffective Disorder
“When my son first told me he was hearing voices I didn't know it could be a sign of mental illness. In fact I thought people were born with the illness. I didn't know it developed later in life. The NAMI Family to Family Education has helped me to better understand my son's illness and the Support Group is a constant source of strength for me and my family."
