NAMI Westchester is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We are a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all individuals and families whose lives are affected by mental illness and co-occurring disorders. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, support and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raise awareness and build a community of hope for all those in need. We offer the kind of understanding and care that only those who have lived the experience of mental illness can provide.
NAMI envisions a world where all persons affected by mental illness experience resiliency, recovery and wellness, and an improved quality of life. We aim to create a culture of awareness and acceptance, where open disclosure of a mental illness does not have negative consequences in the community, the schools and in the workplace. We continue to seek better treatment for mental illnesses and to eliminate the stigma associated with them. Our programs are a primary source of assistance to people of all cultural and economic backgrounds
