About NAMI Northside Atlanta
The families and members of NAMI Northside Atlanta are here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.
NAMI Northside Atlanta is dedicated to eradicating the stigma of mental illness, enhancing the hope of recovery, and improving the quality of life for children and adults who have been diagnosed with a brain disorder through advocacy, education, research, and support.
NAMI Northside Atlanta began in 1985 when a small group of families, with loved ones challenged with a mental illness, came together to share their stories and find support. They found comfort in each other, and they knew that by creating a NAMI affiliate in Fulton County, they could do so much for so many more.
Today our NAMI affiliate remains family-focused and runs on the incredible power of grassroots volunteers. We understand what families and peers go through trying to find the right doctors, the right medications, the right supports, and better life options. We work collaboratively to educate for non-discriminatory access to quality healthcare, housing, education and employment for people with mental illness in order to achieve a more effective recovery-focused system of care. We also advocate for policies and research that optimize the lives of all people challenged by a mental illness.
NAMI Northside Atlanta would love to talk with you about sharing your time and talents with us. We are always looking for new ideas and ways to expand programs and innovate. Tell us what you’re interested in and how you might like to connect.
