Welcome to NAMI - Solano County

 

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a nonprofit, volunteer, grassroots organization. NAMI Solano County three-fold mission:

1.   To educate families and other interested parties about mental illnesses  through lectures, discussion groups, literature, and videos about each of the mental illnesses:

2.   To support families and their mentally ill loved ones through one-on-one   help, referrals, financial aid, scholarships and the like:

3.  To advocate for the rights of the mentally ill and their families on the local, state and national levels. Our members participate in several committees and boards to be sure that the needs of each person are heard and protected.

 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.
