Mission

NAMI Washtenaw County is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, and a local affiliate of the national NAMI and NAMI Michigan. Our mission is to:

  • Educate people in the community about these illnesses and available resources
  • Advocate for optimal treatment, rehabilitation services, desirable living situations and meaningful work for all individuals coping with mental illness
  • Support those who are suffering from mental illnesses, their families and friends
  • Eradicate the stigma surrounding these disorders by encouraging openness and by stressing that these illnesses are biological in nature
