Upcoming NAMI Events

Welcome to NAMI Solano County

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a nonprofit, volunteer, grassroots organization. Our purpose is to:

  • Support families of individuals with mental illnesses.
  • Educate families and the public about mental illness.
  • Advocate for improved treatment and treatment facilities.
  • Fight stigma and discrimination.
  • Support legislation that helps those with neurobiological brain disorders.
  • Improve private and public sector policies.
  • Provide more housing with support services.
  • Increase outreach to people with mental illnesses and their families.

Our affiliate, NAMI Solano County, began when a group of families met to find ways to improve the lives of their loved ones with mental illness. Since that time our membership and influence have continued to grow.

TWO Family-to-Family Classes This Fall!

NAMI Solano County is pleased to announce TWO Family-to-Family classes this fall!

These are free, 12-week educational classes for family members of those living with mental illness. Beginning Thursday Sept. 3rd, our first-time Vallejo class will run through November 19th. Our Fairfield class will be held on Tuesdays, from September 15th through December 1st, 2015. You can download the flyers here [Fairfield or Vallejo] or call 707-422-7792, or email us at to register or for more information.

UPDATE: The response to both classes has been phenomenal, thank you! Both classes are now full, but you can still sign up to be put on a waiting list for classes beginning in January or February. Please contact us as listed in the paragraph above.

Gift Bags Service Project

It's time again for our annual December Gift Bags service project!

We hope we can count on your support as in years past, to help us fill nearly 400 bags with gifts and goodies to give to people living with mental illness here in Solano County.

This year's event will be held on Saturday, December 5th, from 8:30 - noon, at the Fairfield Church of God, 930 Empire St., Fairfield, as in past years. We still need several items in order to fill all the bags with Christmas joy.

If you would like to help purchase or donate items, please contact our Gift Bag Coordinator, Roxanne at 513-292-8338 as soon as possible to find out what we still need.

Please save your receipts; you can turn them in at our General Meeting this coming Monday, Nov. 30th, or also on Saturday, the day of the event, and you will be reimbursed. You can either bring your items with you to our General Meeting, bring them the day of the service project (just let Roxanne know you will be doing this), or call our Warm Line at (707) 422-7229 to arrange a time to bring them to our NAMI office.

Please call Roxanne if you have any questions. You can download a flyer about this event here. Thanks so much for your help again this year!
