NAMI Northside Atlanta
NAMI Northside Atlanta is one of over 1,500 affiliates in communities across the country made up of individuals living with a mental illness and their families and friends. We are a grassroots, self-help, support, education and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of all those affected by serious mental illness. Our mission is to eradicate the stigma associated with these illnesses and to promote research into the causes of and treatments for mental illness. We offer an array of free educational and support programs for individuals and their families.
Mental Illness can affect persons of any age, race, religion or socioeconomic status.
One in five American adults lives with mental illness. Individuals both diagnosed
and undiagnosed with mental illness are those around us – our neighbors, our friends, family and co-workers. Four million children and adolescents in this country suffer from a serious mental disorder that causes significant functional impairments at home, at school and with peers.
Mental health disorders account for more disability that any other illness, including cancer and heart disease reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
