Mental Health Awareness Month


Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI and the rest of the country are bringing awareness to mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.

As a NAMI leader, you play a significant role in growing the movement. Here are some resources for NAMI Affiliates and State Organizations to use to make Mental Health Awareness Month successful.
