Who We Are
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need of assistance in dealing with mental health.
What We Do
We educate. Offered in thousands of communities across America through our NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates, our education programs ensure hundreds of thousands of families, individuals and educators get the support and information they need about mental health, mental illness, crisis and support.
We advocate. NAMI shapes the national public policy landscape for people with mental illness and their families and provides grassroots volunteer leaders with the tools, resources and skills necessary to save mental health in all states.
We listen. Our toll-free NAMI HelpLine allows us to respond personally to hundreds of thousands of requests each year, providing free referral, information and support—a much-needed lifeline for many.
We lead. Public awareness events and activities, including Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), NAMIWalks and other efforts, successfully combat stigma and encourage understanding. NAMI works with reporters on a daily basis to make sure our country understands how important mental health is.

This program is not insurance, it’s assurance. . . to assure that uninsured and under-insured individuals and families get access to medical treatment at a greatly reduced price. It is the only program of its kind licensed with the State of Nevada Division of Insurance. This is also a great healthcare resource for undocumented immigrants.
AHN also offers programs like Women’s Health Connection, the Nevada Colorectal Cancer Control Program, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part B Program, the Aging and Disability Resource Center, the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) and Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) (both of which provide Medicare info and counseling).
