About NAMI Glendale
We are glad you have found us. If you or your loved one suffers from a major mental illness, we can help.
NAMI-Glendale is the local affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) serving Greater Glendale (see map below) including the adjacent communities of Burbank, Eagle Rock, Echo Park, Garvanza, Glendale, Highland Park, Hollywood, Montrose, North Hollywood, Shadow Hills, Silver Lake, Sunland, and Tujunga.
Our mission is to provide FREE education, support, and advocacy to people with mental illness and their families. We also work to raise awareness about mental illness issues and put an end to stigma.
We recognize that mental illnesses are brain disorders, medical conditions from which recovery is possible. The trauma of mental illness directly impacts the family, friends and loved ones of the person who has an illness, and these people, too, need help and can play a pivotal supporting role in an individual’s recovery.
Our Goal is to ensure that every person who has a mental illness has adequate access to medical care, medications, therapy, reliable-accurate information, and a supportive community of assistance.
We understand that coping with mental illness can be overwhelming.
We know. We’ve been there. We can help!
For many of us, finding NAMI-Glendale was the beginning of hope and recovery. NAMI-Glendale provides hope and help through education, support and advocacy.
Our NAMI Programs:
For family members, loved ones, and friends of those who have a mental illness: Family Support Group, Family to Family Education Class, and Basics Education Class
For persons who have a mental illness: Connections Support Group, Peer to Peer Education Class, and In Our Own Voice
For everyone: NAMI-Walks
In addition to the above programs, we do community outreach; compile and publish lists of useful and informative resources; publicize our own and others’ related public events; provide access to regional advocacy and leadership trainings; chime in on public policy debates; and fight stigma against those with brain disorders. NAMI Glendale is open to everyone concerned about the issues of mental illness and the personal and social impacts, and all our programs are always free.
