Formed at a kitchen table in 1979 by families looking for answers, NAMI has grown into the largest grassroots mental health organization in the United States.
NAMI is dedicated to improving the lives of persons living with serious mental health conditions and their families, empowering them toward recovery. NAMI does not provide treatment or counseling; rather the organization focuses on education, advocacy and support.
Locally, NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley works with healthcare providers and other community leaders to address needs within the Quad Cities area. Our work complements treatment, filling an information and education gap for individuals and families.
NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley serves residents of eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
Funds raised by NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley remain in our area to invest in our no-cost education and support programs. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Donations are tax deductible under IRS ID# 42-1188963.
