Muscatine County Expansion

NAMI Greater Mississippi Valley is pleased to announce it is expanding its education and support programs into Muscatine County. A three-year commitment from the Muscatine Health Support Granting Fund has kick-started this effort.

In partnership with the Muscatine Department of Public Health and Trinity Muscatine, NAMI will bring programming for family and caregivers supporting adults and youth living with a mental health condition. Initially, this partnership will work on early detection and treatment, and suicide prevention for youth.
