NAMI Monterey County believes in:

  • Education Education for individuals living with mental illness, their families, and the community is importantant to dispell ignorance and stigma regarding mental illness. We believe that education and information is a vital tool to living with a mental illness.

  • Advocacy NAMI Monterey believes in improving legislation and benefits for those living with mental illness. We use our voice within the state and federal system to support and improve the quality of life for those who are mentally ill.

  • Service Access Our mission is to provide up-to-date information for anyone wanting to learn about mental illness. We work closely with other local resources to provide assistance to those in need.

  • Support NAMI Monterey provides many classes and support groups for family members of a mentally ill person. These classes and support groups allow family members to get the support they need and to know they are not alone.
