National Alliance on Mental Illness


NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of more than 500 local affiliates who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.




The mission of NAMI Mid-Tidewater Virginia is to support individuals affected by mental health disorders along with their families, friends, and the community by sharing our personal experiences, educating the public on the impacts of these disorders and advocating to rid the world of the stigma surrounding brain disorders.


NAMI MidTidewater Virginia covers the general areas of the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
