NAMI Washtenaw County began humbly with a handful of concerned parents of mentally ill children in January of 1984. The organization grew steadily to become the second largest affiliate in the state, and in 1998, won first prize in the NAMI membership contest for affiliates in the 100 to 500 member category. NAMI of Washtenaw County now has over 200 members and continues to thrive and serve the community with two paid staff members..
