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.
