WHAT IS NAMI?
Improving Lives – NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nations’ largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. The national and local organizations are made up of families, professionals in Mental Health and persons with a diagnosis.

EVERY MOMENT COUNTS
The families and members of NAMI Hernando are here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.
Mental illnesses are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling and relating.
This results in substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental illness can affect persons of any age and occur in any family.
Working together we can make a difference
