NAMI provides a unique service to families and individuals affected by mental illness, by providing hope, support, and understanding through our wonderful bilingual staff support, educational programs, connection to resources, and mental health advocacy.

“Before connecting with NAMI Monterey County my family and I knew nothing about my sibling’s diagnosis of Schizophrenia. We were scared for the future and did not know how to cope. NAMI gave us hope. We soon realized, through participation in their community events and the NAMI Family-to-Family class, life after a diagnosis is possible. My family learned about my sibling’s illness and how to be patient and supportive. My mother and I now teach NAMI Familia-a-Familia classes to help spread hope & awareness within the Latino community.” – NAMI Family Member

Money raised will continue funding: educational classes, support groups, mental health trainings, and community events for families and individuals affected by mental illness in Monterey County- with particular expansion efforts focused on Spanish-speaking communities in Salinas and South Monterey County. 

Thank you from NAMI Monterey County!
