Welcome to NAMI Sacramento

NAMI Sacramento

NAMI Sacramento is a grassroots, family and consumer self-help support and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with severe mental illnesses. Severe mental illnesses are physically-based brain disorders that can profoundly disrupt a person's ability to think, feel, and relate to others and their environment.


NAMI Sacramento is the only local mental health agency offering support, education, and advocacy for people coping with their own mental illness and for their family members, too. We receive no government funding and are entirely self-supported. See About NAMI Sacramento for more about NAMI.

 

Family Support

NAMI Sacramento offers educational classes and family support groups and for family members of people coping with serious mental illness. See Education and Support Groups for more.

 

Support for People with Mental Illness

We offer classes to educate people with brain disorders so that they are better equipped to navigate through the experiences and challenges. See Education and Support Groups for more.

 

Trained Speakers are Available

NAMI Sacramento has trained In Our Own voice (IOOV) presenters ready to speak to your organization. For more detail about this program, see In Our Own Voice.

Important Notice

 NAMI programs such as Family-to-Family, Peer-to-Peer, and In Our Own Voice should not be used to replace the specialized training and professional judgment of mental health professionals. We cannot, and will not, assume the role of a physician or therapist. Please read this important notice about NAMI Sacramento's role in your mental health care.
