Summer’s right around the corner!  What better way to get ready than by joining us on May 22nd for our NAMIWALKS event!! Join our team, donate, or spread the word… we are gathering virtually on the National day of Hope to raise awareness about mental illness and raise funds to continue NAMI programs in our community.

AND… for every $20 donation you make to our NAMI Central Oregon team, you get one entry into a drawing for this fantastic summer starter kit (or for some of us, a nice summer refresh kit).  This Rumple Blanket will be sure to keep you warm on those chilly summer evenings,  the Nomadix towel will keep you nice and dry on those summer lake days, and you will stay hydrated with this bright Sunflower Hydroflask. This basket values for over $155. We will have the drawing on May 22nd – watch our Facebook and Instagram for details about the live event!! *Be sure to list your full name with the donation

NAMI Central Oregon Support Groups

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.

NAMI relies on gifts and contributions to support our important work.

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.

We Support.  We offer support groups for Individuals and families. 

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.
