About NAMI

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots organization for people with mental illness and their families. Founded in 1979, NAMI has affiliates in every state and in more than 1,100 local communities across the United States. We believe that pursing mental health involves patience, courage, and the support of others, and we are passionate about providing you with the tools and resources to overcome the negative stigma associated with mental illness.

NAMI West Central Indiana (NAMI-WCI) serves Tippecanoe County and the seven surrounding counties: Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Montgomery, Warren and White.

Here at NAMI-WCI, we promise to:

  • Continue to work actively to improve the lives of individuals diagnosed with serious mental illness and their family members
  • Remain vigorous advocates for the implementation of evidence-based practices for mental illness treatment
  • Work to establish a positive environment in which constructive attitudes towards those impacted by mental illness can flourish
