As a person living with mental health illness, you might feel broken, hurt and confused.

As the family member of someone challenged with mental health illness, you might feel broken-hearted, ashamed, guilty, responsible, nervous and helpless.

Persons with mental illness often navigate serious health conditions. The probability of these leading causes of death presenting is greater: diabetes, cancer, cardiometabolic disease, substance abuse and suicide.

NAMI provides proven educational programs that are life-changing. Find one near you (we serve the greater Mississippi Valley and beyond).


Recovery starts at home with people who know and love you. They can see the signs and provide the support you need. Our role as your mental health advocates is to help you – and those who love you – find help and hope.

NAMI is a grassroots organization dedicated to educating everyone – from young people to mature adults – that mental health conditions are treatable and recovery is possible. The earlier they are detected, the better.


Recovery continues beyond the home with NAMI. Your mental health issues are our mental health issues and you do not have to go it alone. We have walked the walk and talked the talk.

Whether you know it or not, we have suffered right alongside you because this is a community spanning across six counties in western Illinois and eastern Iowa. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! And you never have to work through this alone ever again.

Our local education and support programs complement the work of health care professionals, social workers and school counselors. We fill the information gap between individuals, families and healthcare providers, promoting understanding and support. 


Please help us ensure that no individual or family walks alone.
