National Alliance on Mental Illness – Greater Seattle
MISSION STATEMENT: To address the unmet mental health needs within our community through support, referral, education, and outreach.
NAMI Seattle is the only organization in the Seattle area working specifically to fill the gaps in our local mental health system through education, referrals, and support. We offer classes and support groups at no cost to those who need them, connecting people with shared experiences and providing guidance on how to navigate an increasingly insufficient and complex mental health system. We are who people call when a mental health issue has left them feeling totally alone, when one more “Press 5” phone tree might just make them give up and lose hope. Website here
