NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties
20 Years Building Communities of Recovery and Hope
Our mission at NAMI Arapahoe/Douglas Counties is to provide education, support, and advocacy for people whose lives are impacted by mental illness.
We are here to help families and individuals with their mental health goals including support and recovery. NAMI works to achieve equitable services and treatment for more than 15 million Americans living with severe mental illnesses and their families. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers participate in more than one thousand local affiliates and fifty state organizations to provide mental health education and support, combat stigma, support increased funding for research, and advocate for adequate health insurance, housing, rehabilitation, and jobs for people with mental illness.
Local affiliates, such as ours, are the lifeblood of NAMI. This is where the real work of NAMI takes place, from support groups to classes and speakers to community outreach and help in finding community resources. We are here to help and we understand. NAMI relies on gifts and contributions to support our important work so please donate and help us spread mental health across our community.
