The National Alliance on Mental Illness was established in 1979 for individuals with mental illness and their families as a self-help organization that provides support, education, and advocacy to anyone affected by serious and persistent biologically-based brain disorders. With approximately 220,000 NAMI members nationwide and 1,200 affiliates throughout the country, NAMI is now the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization. An affiliate of NAMI Ohio, NAMI of Hancock County is a non-profit organization offering support and education for area residents with mental illness as well as their family, friends, caregivers, providers, and anyone else interested in learning more about the struggle and recovery from serious brain disorders. Brain disorders – such as bipolar, major depression, schizophrenia or post traumatic stress disorder – are real diseases causing disturbances in feeling and thinking. These diseases affect people of all ages, races, cultures, and socio-economic classes.
