TOGETHER for Mental Health
September is Suicide Prevention Month. Please join us in our TOGETHER 4MH campaign and help save lives today.
Mental health is an incredibly important part of overall health. With a growing number of Americans experiencing mental health symptoms, we need to join together to advocate for improving our nation's mental health care system.
A Comforting Environment that Provides the Opportunity to Overcome Mental Health Barriers.
Welcome to NAMI Greater Houston. If you are an individual or family member who has been searching for an accepting environment that will dedicate its resources to elevating and transforming the lives affected by mental illness, NAMI is the organization that will work tirelessly to help those affected by mental health obstacles obtain renewed hope and purpose.

NAMI Greater Houston offers various ongoing support groups. These are free, confidential, and open to all individuals affected by mental illness. A change in behavior or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored. When there is someone who understands your plight or the plight of a loved one, you can start the process of healing. Share your story. Become liberated. Be heard among those who fully understand.
Education is an essential element to fully understand mental health conditions affecting individuals, as well as families.
