Who We Are

New to NAMI? Welcome! We are the Wake County affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Through our support groups, classes, education events, presentations, fundraisers, and organizational partnerships, we serve thousands of residents in our community each year.

NAMI Wake provides support, education, & advocacy to those affected by mental health challenges to create a community where mental health is valued.

We’ve adjusted to virtual programming during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Join our virtual support groups, which meet weekly, find an education class to help you navigate your own or a loved one’s mental health condition, or explore our site for a variety of local and national mental health services and resources. Updated resources can be found on the lefthand sidebar. Just click on the “Resources for the Community” tab!
